Emi Martinez buys £20,000 dog to prorect his World Cup winners medal

Argentina and Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez has sought to protect his World Cup winner’s medal by reportedly paying £20,000 for a guard dog.

The 30-year-old was a key part of Argentina’s World Cup success as he picked up the golden glove and starred in two penalty shoot-outs during the tournament in Qatar, but has been criticised for his antics in the final and in the celebrations following the triumph.

The guard dog reportedly costs a minimum of £20,000 and weigh up to 30kgs.

Martinez reportedly made the purchase from Elite Protection Dogs with a view to protect his family in the West Midlands as well as his World Cup winner’s medal.
