Emiliano "Dibu" Martínez is enjoying a great sporting moment not only in the Argentine National Team, where he has just won the Copa América, Finalissima and Qatar 2022 World Cup, but also in Aston Villa; where he is finally supported by a great team that dreams of fighting hard in the Premier League and that managed to rise from the ashes since Unai Emery took over at the end of last year.

After the dismissal of Steven Gerrard after a very weak start to the 2022/23 season that left the Villains committed to the fight for permanence, the one chosen to replace the Liverpool legend was an old acquaintance of Draw at Arsenal and in party responsible for the man from Mar del Plata joining the Birmingham cast: Unai Emery.

The Spaniard was one of the many Gunners coaches to not give way to Martínez and opt for other goalkeepers, as was the case of the German Bernrd Leno before his dismissal in the first weeks of the 2019/20 Premier League; In which, with Mikel Arteta in charge, the opportunity that the Argentine had been waiting for so much arrived due to the injury of his teammate and which ended with him leaving for Villa.

Since the arrival of Emery, a new air began to be breathed in the Villains, who began to show a great offensive game (which often left the defense unguarded, leaving Martínez to his fate in the goal, which led to several defeats by rout like with Manchester City and Liverpool) that allowed them to finish the last Premier League in seventh place; achieving qualification to the Conference League.

The start of a new season brought with it the continuity of the mood to return to the international level, with such a great start that after a third of the tournament they are in third place with 39 points along with Liverpool, just one unit away from the leader Arsenal, with three consecutive victories where they are triumphs over great contenders for the title such as Manchester City and Arsenal.
