Former Crystal Palace owner, Simon Jordan, has taken another swipe at a footballer at the World Cup.
Jordan, known for his outspoken takes over the past few years, has lashed out at the behavior of Aston Villa star Emi Martinez during Argentina’s World Cup final win over France.
Martinez was his nation’s hero on Sunday, saving penalties against the French in the shootout after the game finished 3-3 after extra time.
Speaking on talkSPORT, Jordan said: “Martinez’s actions, the holding of the ball and throwing it the other way.
“The goalkeeper’s actions, I don’t think it was gamesmanship, I don’t think it’s part of the game.
“For a referee to allow the goalkeeper to manipulate the circumstances, to heighten the pressure, to increase it, I think was one of the shortcomings in that moment in time.”
