Emiliano Martinez

Aston Villa goalkeeper Martinez pondered his move to Emirates Stadium back in 2010, admitting he never wanted to join Arsenal.

 

What did Emiliano Martinez say?

Emiliano Martinez originally contacted Arsenal from Independiente for £ 1.1 million, leaving his family in Argentina to take on a new challenge in Europe at 17. The shot-stopper spent the next decade trying to force his way into the first team of Gunners, but now announced that he would prefer to stay at home and continue his development at the start of his career. Emiliano Martinez, who completed the £ 20m move to Aston Villa from Arsenal in September 2020, explained that he left Independiente only to provide stronger financial support to his family.

The 29-year-old said that Arsenal had come to look for him and Santoro’s coach at Independiente told him that the train only runs once in a lifetime. the Emiliano family and his agents thought the same. So the solution was more to them than anything else. Emiliano Martinez didn’t want to go. Emiliano did not regret it, but wanted to play in Independiente. For a while Martinez thought that if he stayed, he would debut in two years. the Martinez family was short on some money. Emiliano did it for this more than sports.

 

A little about Emiliano

Emiliano Martinez was loaned to Oxford, Sheffield Wednesday, Rotherham, Wolves, Getafe and Reading during his interactions with Arsenal when he was forced to watch David Ospina, Petr Cech, Wojciech Szczesny, Manuel Almunia and Lukasz Fabianski receive regular minutes Leno was also some time ahead of the Argentine on the team, but the German suffered an injury near the rear end of the 2019-20 campaign, which gave his stunt double the chance to step up.

Emiliano rose to the challenge and helped the Gunners win the FA Cup while earning plaid for his Premier League performances, but Arteta head coach ultimately decided to reinstate Bernd Leno as # 1 upon his return. Arsenal then accepted Villa’s offer to transfer Emiliano Martinez and since then has established himself as one of the best guardians in English football, also becoming Argentina’s first choice.
