David Martínez is considered to be one of the most interesting U17s not only in Venezuela but the whole of South America. He made his debut for Monagas SC on 22 February 2022, just two weeks after his 16th birthday, in a Copa Libertadores game against CD Everton – thanks to that he became the first-ever player born in 2006 to play in the competition.
