“Did not want to go”; Emi Martínez talks about Arsenal’s play

Aston Villa and Argentine international goalkeeper Emi Martínez have, you guessed it, once again ruled on his time at Arsenal. This time, however, he was not shooting at the club.

The Mar del Plata native, who has done quite well at Villa Park after his move from the Emirates last summer, reflected on his decision to go to the North London giants in 2010 when he was 17 years old as an Independiente.

In an interview with Argentine outlet The country While in international service, Martinez laid out the reasons for his move to England; one that he apparently wasn’t very interested in.

“Arsenal came to look for me and Pepe Santoro [a coach at Independiente] He told me that the train only passes once in its life. My family and my agents thought the same. So the decision was more to them than anything else.

I did not want to go. I don’t regret it, but I wanted to play for Independiente. For a while I thought, ‘If I stay, in two years I will make my debut. [My family] It lacked a little financially. I did it more for that than for sports. “

Financial problems are a normal factor for professional footballers

There has long been a stigma that suggests that a footballer who moves from one club to another strictly for financial reasons renders that player devoid of genuine intentions.

Emi Martinez certainly moved to Aston Villa from Arsenal for the sake of her career and the chance to be the guaranteed first-choice goalkeeper at a club, but her move to Arsenal from Independiente was for money, and the financial well-being of her family. It was hardly a bad choice.

The recent move of Brazilian Matheus Pereira from West Brom to the Saudi Arabian team Al-Hilal Riyadh, when he could have secured a move back to the Premier League or a continental league in a much better position, which the player admitted was due to money y Your family’s financial future is an excellent example of the realities of employment that we all face every day.

Most, if not all, of us have changed jobs for no other reason than to receive better wages; footballers often do the same. So perhaps this is one of the reasons why Martínez talking about Arsenal will help raise awareness about the reality of being a professional footballer; They are not that different from us.
