Tottenham Hotspur fans have been reacting to the latest news surrounding the club continues their search for a new head coach.

Spurs are without a permanent man in the dugout at the moment with Ryan Mason taking charge on an interim basis following the of Jose Mourinho on Monday. They got off to a winning start under the new regime with a 2-1 win over Southampton on Wednesday, but what the situation will look like beyond this season is still up in the air.

A report from Belgian outlet Sport/Foot (via Sports Mole) has claimed that Belgium manager Martinez has instructed his to find him a club job following the conclusion of this summer’s European Championships.

This follows on from a report in The Guardian that claimed the ex-Wigan and Everton boss has a lot of admirers within the club, so it’s easy to make the connection that Martinez could be the man to take on the role.

When the news was relayed to fans via @LastWordOnSpurs on Twitter, however, there didn’t seem to be much of an appetite for him to take on the job, with many of them dead against the notion:

“He won’t be welcome here. He bombed at Everton”

“Not a good move. Nothing from his previous Premier experiences shouts out that he is the man for this job”
“Please no. Can Levy not do anything. I’d rather keep Mason tbh”
“No no no no no. Hiring this guy is a sackable offence”
“This would be the final straw! Please god, no!”
“Please no man. I’m begging”

Would Roberto Martinez make a good Spurs boss?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Let’s see if their appetite changes if he has a successful tournament with Belgium over the summer – that might convince a few of them to jump on the bandwagon.
