Brilliant Emi Martinez trolls critics with Instagram post

Arsenal goalkeeper Emi Martinez took to Instagram to respond to trolls that he handled the ball outside the penalty box. 

There was a controversial moment involving Martinez, which angered Chelsea fans, collecting a loose ball on the edge of his area - and replays proved inconclusive as to whether he handled the ball outside the area.

However, Martinez reacted brilliantly to suggestions he had committed a potential red card offence by posting a photo of himself on Instagram.

My best moment at Wembley was catching a pokemon 🤣 #pikachu

A post shared by Emiliano Martinez (@emi_martinez26) on

The photo shows Martinez catching the ball on the line, with the caption: "My best moment at Wembley was catching a pokemon #pikachu" - a reference to the advertising hoardings to the side of the pitch.

Martinez has been Arsenal's number since late June after Bernd Leno got injured. 

Having spent 10 years at the club, the Argentine was afforded a dream start in Saturday's FA Cup Final against Chelsea - and Martinez and his defence held their nerve as the Gunners fought back from a goal down to win 2-1.
