'This guy', 'Legend': Arsenal fans loved what Emi Martinez did at Old Trafford
Arsenal might have sold Emi Martinez last year to Aston Villa but many Gunners fans still keep a firm eye on his progress and what he’s up to.
And most of the time, they aren’t short of highlights or key moments to have a nosey at. Certainly, today at Old Trafford, Martinez provided Arsenal fans with another fine piece of showmanship.
Captured on Twitter by eagle-eyed onlookers, Martinez was shown winding up the Manchester United fans after Bruno Fernandes had woefully blazed over the bar at Old Trafford earlier.
Martinez has almost made making penalties as hard as possible for the other side his mission. We saw it with Argentina in the Copa America, and we saw it today with Martinez having some choice words with Ronaldo.
Of course, Ronaldo might well get his hands on the next one now Fernandes has fluffed his lines.
But aside from that, Arsenal fans were loving what they saw from their former stopper. And while Aaron Ramsdale has endeared himself to the Gunners support base lately, there was still plenty of love for Martinez.
Here, then, is what some Arsenal fans had to say on Twitter.

Have to admit I liked this side to his character when he played for us.
