After Argentina beat France to win the 2022 World Cup, goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez took the opportunity to mock French star Kylian Mbappe.
As the Argentine players danced in the dressing room to celebrate the championship, goalkeeper Martinez shouted: “For Mbappe, who is dead!”
At the championship parade in his hometown, Martinez continued to mock Mbappe. He holds a doll with the face of the French striker while dancing and singing. Standing next to Martinez is Lionel Messi.
Because of his extreme actions, Martinez was constantly criticized. Most recently, coach Christophe Galtier confirmed: “I will focus on the relationship between Mbappe and Messi. Not Messi has angered anyone else.
What I saw after the final, what I experienced, there’s no reason to overdo it. Because the story stems from the behavior of the Argentine goalkeeper.”
Mbappe is now back at PSG headquarters and is ready to play against Strasbourg this week.
