John Terry now sends message to Emi Martinez on Instagram after World Cup victory
The Argentinian won the Golden Glove, and saved Kingsley Coman’s penalty in Sunday night’s shootout.
Martinez has established himself as an expert in penalty shootouts.
He was in goal for Argentina’s Copa America victory, and their quarter-final win over the Netherlands.
However, it’s hard to argue they didn’t play a part in the final result, with France struggling to deal with his mind games.
Martinez’s performances for Argentina at the World Cup have unsurprisingly attracted some attention from other clubs.
His agent has also said that Martinez wants the opportunity to play in the Champions League.
Martinez impresses at the World Cup
The 30-year-old posted a number of pictures of him and his team celebrating on Instagram.
A number of his international teammates, including Marcos Acuna and Guido Rodriguez loved his post.
John Terry also replied, applauding the goalkeeper’s effort to win the trophy.
The Chelsea legend has a connection with the club having played and coached them in the past.
Although he never played alongside Martinez, he was assistant manager when he joined the club.
Martinez is likely to be one of Unai Emery’s most important players in the second half of the season.
He was handed the captain’s armband for his opening league game in charge, when Villa beat Manchester United.
The goalkeeper will return to Villa Park full of confidence, although it’s not unknown whether he will feature on Boxing Day.
It’s in stark contrast to after Argentina’s first game, when they lost to Saudi Arabia.
He admitted he spoke to a psychologist after that match, and it certainly looks to have paid off.
