The last weekend in the Premier League, Emiliano Martinez clashed with a French striker. An attitude very expressed across the Channel.
Emiliano Martinez’s popularity rating, already very low in France, is unlikely to improve… Guilty of multiple provocations towards the French, Kylian Mbappé in the lead, after the Argentinian’s coronation at the 2022 World Cup , the 31-year-old goalkeeper had a live clash with Neal Maupay this weekend, during Aston Villa’s victory at Brentford (1-2).
In the end, the winner of the 2023 Yachine Trophy is attentive to the Nice jersey, which is resting in the sun, to lift up. Enough to provoke a scuffle between the children of the two camps and the explosion of the ex-Marseillais Boubacar Kamara. A behavior that does not cross the Channel.
“He’s a very good goalkeeper, but a bit stupid”
One of the chroniclers of Daily Mail did not mince his words when discussing the behavior of the 2022 world champion. “I don’t like Martinez at all and yesterday (Sunday) he was a disgrace. He’s an idiot, it’s embarrassing”, an indication from the journalist, and adding: “I think he’s an idiot, to be honest. I’ll piss people off if I say this, but it’s what I think. He’s a very good goalkeeper, but a bit stupid. » The message is now outdated.
