Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez has come under fire after appearing to “like” an Instagram post calling for Unai Emery to be sacked.
Back-up keeper Martinez, 27, is currently away from north London on international duty with Argentina.
Eagle-eyed fans spotted that Martinez had reacted to a post from “afc.talk” which stated “Like for Emery out”, joining nearly 13,000 other users to like the picture.
Martinez has since unliked the picture after fans spotted the activity, suggesting it may have been unintentional, but after a number of similar controversies not all fans are willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.
Commented on the incident on Reddit, one fan said: “I’m no longer willing to give the benefit of the doubt to any player who does this, even if it’s our own. It’s clearly on purpose.”
Another added: “A bit embarrassing if he’s done that on purpose tbf. Be professional”…
