Opinion: Man U Fans Have Every Right To Mock Martinez After His Arrogant Behaviour Towards Ronaldo

The famous expression of, "he who laughs last, laughs best" is the perfect expression that can be used to describe what happened between Aston Villa's Emiliano Martinez and Manchester United fans after Arsenal put three past him to secure a 3-1 win over his club yesterday night.

That victory meant Arsenal now have the same number of points as United do and sit on 9th position, three places below them because of their goal difference.

One would think that Man U fans would be gutted by this embarrassing turn of events considering how the season started for both these clubs, but they weren't.

Instead, they shamelessly grabbed their phones and began mocking Emiliano Martinez on social media after the game.

But why?

This because of his arrogant behaviour towards Ronaldo during Man U's home defeat to Aston Villa earlier this season.

Don't forget that Manchester United were losing one nil when they got a penalty in the dying minutes of the game. With Ronaldo and Bruno on the pitch, it was unclear who would play the penalty.

So Martinez began his popular taunting of players who were about to play a penalty against him. He arrogantly dared Ronaldo to take charge of the situation and play the penalty, because he was going to stop it.

But the 6-time Ballon D'or winner wasn't going to put his personal ambition ahead of the team's, because if history is anything to go by, he'd have scored past Martinez even though the keeper is very good at saving penalties.

Bruno Fernandes is the team's designated penalty taker and he took the ball but skied his penalty well over the bar. Martinez turned to the United fans behind him, and showed his impertinence.

So yesterday, when Arsenal got a penalty and Aubameyang stepped up to take it, many Man United fans were already imagining how they'll troll and make fun of the Argentine shot stopper.

Unfortunately for former Arsenal man, he saved the penalty, but couldn't stop Aubameyang from scoring with the rebound.

This gave United fans the opportunity to begin to laugh at the keeper as payback for what he did to them during their meeting earlier this season.

In my opinion, i think they have every right to mock Martinez because he started it and all they're doing is returning the favour.

Although I am terribly shocked at the fact that these fans don't realise how disgraceful it is that Arsenal who were bottom of the table with 0 points while United had 7 points after Match-day 3 are now level on points with them on 14 points.
