Spurs are without a permanent man in the dugout at the moment with Ryan Mason taking charge on an interim basis following the sacking 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 agent 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”
Would Roberto Martinez make a good Spurs boss?
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.
