Emiliano “Dibu” Martínez extends until 2027 with Aston Villa


Emiliano “Dibu” Martínez has extended his contract until 2027 with Aston Villa.

Dibu has found a home with Aston Villa as he will remain there for another five years. The club announced the extension on Friday.

Martínez joined the club ahead of the 2020-2021 season and has been the starter since joining them. Speaking with VillaTV, here is what he had to say abouy his extension:

I won a major tournament with Argentina not long ago and every time I come through the tunnel at Villa Park on a matchday, I can see the crowd, the lights, the fans excited for us to play.

“Just before coming out [on to the pitch], I see the Champions League trophy and the FA Cup trophy and that’s where I want to get.

“I want to be in a Champions League final with Villa, I want to be at Wembley playing in an FA Cup final or EFL final.

“That’s why I’m committing five and a half years to this club because that’s where I want to get.

“When I signed for Aston Villa, obviously I had massive ambitions about being in Europe and being the best version of myself, and the club have opened a really good door for me.

“They made me a better goalkeeper, with the goalkeeping coach Neil Cutler, Christian [Purslow], Johan [Lange], they’re good people, very loyal and ambitious as well, like the owners.

“So winning a major tournament for Argentina, thank you to Aston Villa for developing me as a good goalkeeper; and I think actually I can improve much more here and I want to commit my future here.

“It feels like home.”

Since joining Villa, he has also become the undisputed goalkeeper for the Argentina national team.


  1. i have NEVER EVER SEE IN MY LIFE one IDIOT like you. the word IDIOT have lost it meaning with you. you are the King of the idiot community in the world.

  2. Scaloni called Meza, it would be difficult to compete World cup with his team selection. again coaches are letting the team down. Really pathetic to see the team selection based on biasedness, not on merit.

      • Already a lot of players are stupid selection, Pezzella, Armani, Taglificao, Quarta Martinez, and Andrada. He is happy and contends with Copa america. don’t have any idea about European teams. Some trashing is needed soon otherwise we are not going anywhere in WC.

  3. I hope Emi Martinez contract extension just like Grealish, the quality he has deserve to play bigger club hope Tottenham buy Emi next summer or Barcelona.

    • Here’s a suggestion, if you so want to be part of this blog, then create an account with no references to your original one, refrain from using idiotic innuendos and “farmer” language and engage in civilized discourse. But no, you insist on the same, wasting Roy’s time on deleting your accounts over and over again.

      • I don’t understand why he insists with using the heart, gives it away every time. I guess we are seeing progress in that his account does not look like an Icardi fanpage or has anything to do with unattainable women but he hasn’t learned to stop the nonsense he writes about.
