Qatar 2022: It’s sad, you’ll be remembered for your antics – Saha criticizes Argentina’s Martinez

Former Manchester United striker Luis Saha slammed Argentine goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez for his antics after his team’s victory in the 2022 FIFA World Cup Final over France on Sunday in Qatar.

Argentina won the World Cup thanks to Martinez’s heroics with a 4-2 penalty shootout victory over France after the match finished tied 3-3 after 120 minutes.

Martinez, who was awarded the Golden Glove for his performance during the competition, controversially celebrated by lowering the trophy towards his thighs and shoving it towards the crowd at Lusail Stadium in Qatar.

In response to the development, Saha condemned Martinez for his celebrations and insisted the Aston Villa goalkeeper be remembered for his antics rather than his performances.

“Emiliano Martinez’s antics will be remembered for a long time, and it’s sad,” the former France international told Paddy Power.

He added, “He had a great tournament, and he didn’t need to do it. It was more about his adrenaline, some people do things without thinking and instinctively do something they regret.”
