He played his first six MLS seasons with Atlanta United FC, where he won the MLS Cup (2018), U.S. Open Cup (2019) and Campeones Cup (2019). He was the league’s MVP and MLS Cup MVP in 2018, won the Golden Boot in 2018 (31 goals) and made the MLS All-Star team in 2018 and 2019

Before arriving in North America, Martinez played for Torino in Italy’s Serie A from 2014-17, scoring seven goals. He also spent time in Switzerland with BSC Young Boys and FC Thun after making his professional debut in 2010 with Venezuela’s Caracas FC.

At the national team level, Martinez has played 66 games for Venezuela since 2011, scoring 14 goals and taking part in three World Cup qualifying rounds and four editions of Copa America (2015, 2016, 2019 and 2021)
