Aston Villa: Fans react to Emiliano Martinez injury

Aston Villa: Fans react to Emiliano Martinez injury - Aston Villa

Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez had to be stretchered off the pitch late on Tuesday evening while on international duty with Argentina.

And, as to be expected, a number of Villa fans shared their concern regarding the 28-year-old on social media.

The shot-stopper made the move to Villa Park last summer and kept 15 clean sheets in his debut season and was also named as Villa’s Supporters’ Player of the Season.

Bertrand Traore Aston Villa

Can you guess the nationality of these big-money Aston Villa signings? First up, Bertrand Traore.

Martinez lost consciousness in Argentina’s 2-2 World Cup qualifier with Colombia following a collision with Everton’s Yerry Mina.

The Villa number one landed heavily after colliding with Mina and slammed the back of his head and neck against the pitch on landing.

Martinez had lengthy treatment before being replaced by FC Porto’s Agustin Marchesin, however, he has since reassured supporters his injury was nothing serious.

How many signings do Villa need this summer?







Villa fans react

@villareport shared the news on Martinez’s injury in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

This is what these Villa supporters immediately had to say about the update, with one describing it as ‘heart wrenching’.

“I genuinely could cry”

“Shocking challenge from Yerry Mina, landed really awkward on his back and hit his head as he landed”

“Absolutely heartwrenching to see. In his 2nd ever Argentina game. Poor bloke, hope its not as bad as it looks.”

Please, PLEASE be okay

“Oh no”
