Emiliano Martinez trolls Man United fans and appeared to ask Cristiano Ronaldo to take penalty

  • Rob Swan

Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes spurned the opportunity to rescue a point for Manchester United at home to Aston Villa on Saturday afternoon.

The Portuguese midfielder is usually so reliable from the spot, but he blazed his stoppage-time penalty high over the crossbar.

Villa had taken the lead minutes earlier when Kortney Hause headed Douglas Luiz’s corner past David de Gea.

But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were handed a lifeline at the death when referee Mike Dean pointed to the spot.

Many inside Old Trafford would have expected Cristiano Ronaldo to step up after the number of penalties he’s scored throughout his remarkable career.

But Bruno took responsibility and blazed his penalty into Row Z.


Emiliano Martinez trolls Man United fans

Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez must have been taking some stick from the United fans behind him because his first reaction was to turn around and troll the home crowd with a cheeky celebratory dance.

Here’s the footage (keep an eye on Martinez):

And let’s take a closer look at the Argentine goalkeeper:

Here’s footage from the stands…


Martinez wanted Cristiano Ronaldo to take penalty

Before the penalty was taken, Martinez also appeared to be asking Ronaldo to take the penalty instead of Fernandes.

Watch that clip here:

We saw during the Copa America that Martinez is prone to the odd bit of s***housery, so perhaps we shouldn’t be too surprised.

The South American made sure that he got into everyone’s heads and took the opportunity to rub salt into United fans’ wounds after Bruno blazed over.
