Returning from Qatar as the champion of the 2022 World Cup, but besides the praise, the Argentina team also caused a lot of noise, mainly related to goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez.
Despite becoming Albiceleste’s hero with a tenth save at the end of extra time as well as a save from Coman’s penalty, Martinez is at the center of controversy. This stems from his celebrations and provocations for France, especially targeting Mbappe after the final.
Emiliano Martinez has indecent behavior towards Mbappe while celebrating the World Cup in his home country
Emi Martinez hugged a doll with Mbappe’s face in the parade of the Argentina team. And Martinez’s provocation of the French players has not stopped. Recently, he again had provocative words directed at Tchouameni.
“When I saved the first penalty in the final, I knew the next player would be nervous. I tried to psychologically play with him by throwing the ball away, talking to him. And he missed the goal. He ruined everything.”
In addition to Mbappe, Martinez also provoked Tchoumeni
Martinez was dubbed “the most loathed person in the world of football” by former France midfielder Adil Rami after delivering several provocations to the French players. Additionally, the French Football Federation has complained about Martinez’s insulting remarks regarding Mbappe. The Argentina goalie, meanwhile, continues to act foolishly.
Martinez, 30, is about to pay a rather severe price for his inappropriate behavior, according to the Spanish press, despite the Argentine Football Federation and Martinez’s manager, Coach Scaloni, having yet to respond to this occurrence.
Unai Emery, the head coach, recently revealed in an interview with Aston Villa, the club that represents Emi Martinez, that he will talk with his players about what happens after the final. However, Estadio Deportivo claims that things are not going well and that internal warnings or penalties won’t likely be the end of it.
Coach Unai Emery is said to want to get rid of Emiliano Martinez from Aston Villa
Accordingly, this newspaper claimed that despite Emiliano Martinez being the world champion and the vice captain of Aston Villa, coach Emery sought to remove him from Villa Park. According to reports, the Spaniard is enraged by Martinez’s insulting humor toward his teammates following the World Cup final.
Such things should not be present in Mr. Emery’s team. As a result, the Aston Villa boss declared that Yassine Bounou, who also excelled while wearing the Moroccan jersey at the 2022 World Cup, should take his place. Bounou presently works for Emery’s former squad, Sevilla.
Emery wants to bring Bounou to replace Emiliano Martinez
The connection between head coach Unai Emery and Emiliano Martinez has been fundamentally problematic since since they worked at Arsenal together in 2019. Their time at Arsenal in 2019 was the beginning of this difficult period.
The Argentine goalkeeper wasn’t exactly a super-sub at the moment, and the first time anyone really started paying notice to him was in 2020, when Bernd Leno got hurt. After that, Martinez walked away from Arsenal and made the same transition to Aston Villa.
If Martinez has a good showing at the 2022 World Cup, then coach Emery may not have given him much thought when deciding whether or not to include him in the most recent trip. It is said that Bayern has showed interest in signing the reigning world champion. While Neuer recovers from a fractured leg, Munich is in need of a goalkeeper of the highest caliber to take Neuer’s place in the starting lineup.
