Dean Windass has exclusively told This is Futbol that Roberto Martinez would be a great appointment for Tottenham.
It’s been more than four weeks since the north London outfit sacked Jose Mourinho and put former midfielder Ryan Mason in interim charge.
Would Kane leave Tottenham for Chelsea?
Not in a million years
I can see him in blue
But Spurs are yet to name a permanent replacement for the Portuguese despite a host of names being thrown into the hat for the job in recent weeks.
They’ve already missed out on Daniel Levy’s top three targets in Julian Nagelsmann, Brendan Rodgers and Erik ten Hag, but reports believe that Martinez would be keen on a return to the Premier League following the conclusion of the European Championships this summer.
Martinez, who once lauded Dele Alli, has previously managed both Wigan and Everton, and is now in charge of Belgium, who are amongst the favourites to win the rearranged tournament which starts next month.
His final season in the Premier League saw him guide the Merseysiders to a disappointing 12th-placed finish, whilst he also led Wigan to relegation in his final year, but Windass believes the Spaniard would be an excellent replacement for Mourinho.
He told This is Futbol:
“Roberto would be a great choice. I like Roberto, I played against him when he was at Wigan many moons ago.
“If you turned round to me and said they had appointed Roberto, I would say ‘that’s a great appointment’ – he knows the Premier League and has done unbelievable with Belgium.”
