Martinez's antics sparked a backlash from former France star Rami, 37, who insulted him saying, "The biggest son of a b**** in football. The most hated man." Di Maria, 34, was quick to defend his team-mate, Martinez, saying: “El Dibu [Martinez] is the best goalkeeper in the world. Go cry elsewhere.” Rami then intensified the row and responded to Di Maria by posting a screenshot of a tweet that contained pictures of him crying. "Can you teach me? When you lose, when you win, when you leave a club, when you see this tweet." He added, according to The Sun.
