Manchester United suffered an embarrassing 1-0 defeat at the Old Trafford but Aston Villa's goalkeeper, Emiliano Martinez, seem to be getting the headline, because of his arrogant attitude towards Cristiano Ronaldo. The Argentine keeper, was caught on camera taunting Cristiano Ronaldo, while suggesting to Bruno Fernandes to allow the Portuguese captain take the penalty (that awarded to Man United at the last minute). The attitude has been mistaken for confidence, but in truth what he did was very disrespectful and at the same time unsportsmanlike.
Martínez had to be pushed away by Manchester United players as he stood in front of Bruno Fernandes telling Cristiano Ronaldo to take the penalty. Fernandes went ahead to lose the penalty, Martínez then topped off the mockery by dancing infront of Manchester United fans.
This will be the first time Bruno Fernandes would be losing a penalty for the first time in his career, guess the reverse psychology from Martinez worked and it messed up his head. The Argentine has a habit of taunting players, especially when it has to do with penalties and it has always worked in his favour. Maybe, Cristano Ronaldo will start taking Manchester United penalties from now on, as Bruno has been blamed for stepping up to take it, thereby costing the Red Devils a last minute equalizer.
