The Garibaldis beat Aston Villa 2-0 following a blunder from Argentine Goalkeeper

In football, anyone can make a blunder. Including Emiliano Martinez, the man who just won the title of best goalkeeper in the world last weekend. Emiliano Martinez won the 2023 Yashin Trophy and the Argentine goalkeeper received this award on October 31 2023. Of course, there is a reason why Martinez was chosen as the winner of the Yashin Trophy. One of the keys to Martinez's success in winning the Yashin Trophy was his good performance at the 2022 World Cup.

The 31-year-old Martinez beat several well-known names in the race for the Yashin Trophy title. He is ahead of Ederson who won the treble with Manchester City. The Yashin Trophy is a very prestigious title. The winner of this title deserves to be named the best goalkeeper that year. Well, Martinez is the best goalkeeper in the world in 2023. However, Emi Martinez's classy status does not guarantee that he will not make blunders. Well, the blunder occurred when Aston Villa met Nottingham in Week 11 of the Premier League while playing at The City Ground on Sunday, Aston Villa lost with a score of 2-0. One of the goals occurred because of Martinez's blunder.

In the 47th minute, Martinez failed to block Orel Mangala's kick. Martinez's hand hits the ball, but he doesn't block it properly. The ball then bounces and goes into the goal. Argentine goalkeeper was late in responding to that moment. Unai Emery, Aston Villa manager, did not turn a blind eye to the blunders made by Emiliano Martinez. However, Unai Emery will not blame Martinez for Aston Villa's defeat. "We are human and can make blunders. Not just goalkeepers. I never punish the players' mistakes because I want to try to gain everyone's trust," said Emery. "When we face other teams, we have to try to be better than them. Never punish mistakes. Not just Martinez, but everyone," he stressed.
