Emiliano Martinez revealed his theory behind leaving Arsenal

Emiliano Martinez was told that he had a “95% chance” of starting the season’s opening Premier League game against Fulham, later he wanted to leave Arsenal.

Some 10 years after joining the club after an injury to Bernd Leno towards the end of last season, the Argentine goalkeeper finally got his first run in the Arsenal first team.

Ultimately joining Aston Villa in a £ 20 m deal and on the opening day of the league season, he revealed that the inability of manager Mikel Arteta to guarantee him a starting position against Fulham forced him to press for an exit. 

“I thought if I played well that game [Community Shield win], I would be number one, but afterward it still wasn’t clear who was going to start in the league,” he told the Independent.

“I was told that there was a 95% chance I would start against Fulham, but I just thought, ‘why not 100%?’ Something didn’t feel right.

“Everyone wanted me to stay, but that’s when I decided to go. I wasn’t upset or emotional, I was proud I did it. When I arrived at Arsenal [in 2010], there were nine goalkeepers in front of me. Every year I had to prove myself, but I left as number one. That was my story done there.”
