A lot of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to vent their anger at the latest claim to emerge surrounding their search for a new permanent manager.
According to The Sun, should the Belgium manager be appointed as the next Spurs boss, his backroom staff could take pre-season training to ease the transition while he is managing at this summer’s Euros.
Would Roberto Martinez make a good Spurs boss?
The former Everton manager is just one of many names to be linked with the job following the sacking of Jose Mourinho last month.
Ryan Mason has taken the charge on an interim basis, however, he is only expected to remain in the job until the end of the season.
Spurs fans flocked to the tweet from The Spurs Express to slam the report indicating Martinez could potentially become the next Spurs boss.
“Please no… I can’t have Shaun Maloney managing our attacking players”
“Would be a terrible appointment for Spurs, but that’s the least I expect now. These players need a full pre season with any new manager. Regardless Martinez premier league record speaks for itself, it’s terrible”
“That’s a joke, surely. The man is a disaster waiting to happen. So I guess I’ll see him in spurs in a couple of days”
“Everything about this would be awful. If he can’t win an international tournament with all the talent Belgium has, he’s not going to do well enough at Spurs.”
The Lilywhites currently sit in sixth place of the Premier League table
with just four games to go with fourth-placed Chelsea five points adrift.
It is apparent by the reaction of these Spurs fans that they are not impressed by the rumours linking them with potentially hiring the Belgium manager as their Mourinho replacement.
