Former France international Adil Rami slammed Emiliano Martinez for his antics after winning the World Cup, which included taunts of Kylian Mbappe.
Following Argentina’s World Cup win over France, Martinez made headlines for his continued digs aimed towards 23-year-old Mbappe amid the celebrations. As well as leading chants against him, he held up an image of his face in their bus parade. Ex-France international Rami has hit back on Instagram.
In an Instagram story posted to his official account, Rami wrote that Martinez is: “the biggest son of a […] in football,” and went further, calling him “the most hated man.”
Martinez’s pointed celebrations and taunts have caused a stir, with the 30-year-old cutting a polarising figure for his antics. Rami was capped 36 times for Les Bleus between 2010 and 2018, retiring after winning the World Cup in 2018.
Martinez returns to Aston Villa a World Cup winner, but will no doubt have put a target on his back as a result of the showboating and trash talk.
