According to Fichajes, coach Unai Emery is said to be dissatisfied with Emiliano Martinez’s attitude and behavior at the 2022 World Cup, culminating in a rude celebration after receiving the Golden Glove award.
The new captain of Aston Villa is said to want to sell this goalkeeper right in the upcoming transfer window and bring in Yassine Bounou to fill the vacancy. Bounou also had a successful World Cup with Morocco.
Earlier, coach Emery said he would sit privately with Martinez, when the goalkeeper returned to England to discuss attitude and behavior at the World Cup.
“Of course I want Martinez to focus on helping the club win. On the other hand, I also want to control his behavior and emotions,” said the former Arsenal manager.
After shining in the 2022 World Cup final, Martinez left a bad impression with a series of actions that were not beautiful such as excessive celebration, calling on teammates to observe a moment of silence for Kylian Mbappe in the dressing room. During the trophy procession in Argentina, this player continued to hold a mockup of the striker wearing the PSG shirt to mock.
The goalkeeper’s behavior, born in 1992, has been criticized by fans and experts alike. Coach Fabio Capello called Martinez a “fool”, while pundit Graham Souness called the 30-year-old goalkeeper a “clown”.
