Emery said on Tuesday that he always planned to give Martínez extra time before returning to the starting eleven, but hinted that the 30-year-old goalkeeper, widely criticized for his post-World Cup final celebrations, is ready to play again in this derby.
“Emiliano had a very good start with us (on Sunday), being in the group that traveled with us,” Emery said.
“He had trained for two days, Friday and Saturday, and now more sessions, so I think he will be ready after his break and the excitement of winning the World Cup,” said the coach.
“I think that for us it is very important and we can be proud of him for having won the World Cup, but now his focus is one hundred percent astonville“he added
Martínez was an important figure in the achievement of the title by Argentina.
Villa have now won three of the four games since Emery’s arrival on the bench in November and the team Birmingham has moved away from the relegation zone, occupying the twelfth position.
