Emiliano Martinez finally victim of his provocations?


After his victory in the World Cup, Emiliano Martinez could end up regretting his provocations aimed at the players of the French team. The attitude of the Albiceleste goalkeeper would indeed deeply annoy Unai Emery, his coach at Aston Villa.

For Emiliano Martinez, the backlash could prove to be very painful. Winner of the 2022 World Cup and voted Best Goalkeeper of the Tournament, “Dibu” Martinez had everything to spend a superb end of the year with his family. But far from celebrating these successes in a reasonable way, the 30-year-old porter preferred to create a scandal.

First by demanding a minute of silence for “the death” of Kylian Mbappé in the Albiceleste locker room and then by showing off a doll bearing the image of the Frenchman during the victory parade in Buenos Aires. To this is also added this dubious celebration which was aimed at the fans of the French team after the defeat in the final. We could also mention this chambering for Aurélien Tchouaméni, an unfortunate shooter during the penalty shootout.

Dibu Martinez soon fired from Aston Villa?

While Argentinian fans have enjoyed their keeper’s exploits inside and outside the green rectangle, not everyone has. In France, Emiliano Martinez has become public enemy number one in just a few hours. But the criticisms have gone far beyond the borders of France.

In England, the country where the native of Mar Del Plata evolves, these repeated slippages have also annoyed a lot in the press. More annoying for the World Champion, the coach of Aston Villa, Unai Emery, would not see these escapades with a very good eye either. The media Sports Stadium goes so far as to say that the former PSG coach could even demand the departure of his goalkeeper. It should be noted, however, that the relationship between the two men has remained rather tense for several months already.
