Dave Prentice has been speaking on the latest edition of the Liverpool Echo’s Royal Blue podcast about potential successors to former Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti after he left Goodison Park and re-joined Real Madrid.
While discussing potential replacements for Ancelotti, Prentice mentioned former Everton boss and current Belgium manager Roberto Martinez, who apparently still has supporters within the Everton hierarchy.
He said: “An intriguing one is Roberto Martinez. I wouldn’t relish his return, but there are plenty out there that would. Apparently, he’s told people that he’s looking forward to a successful European Championships, then he wants to get back into club football.
“He still has his admirers at Goodison Park. Does that mean they wait until the end of the European Championships? That’s a real gamble then, or do they try and organise something beforehand and try and tap him up before the tournament is finished?”
Do you think Martinez would be a good appointment?
No, he has had his time
Yes, he could be the man we need
TIF Thoughts on Roberto Martinez going back to Everton…
The search for a new manager for the Toffees is going to be fascinating to watch, and you hope they don’t make the wrong appointment after Ancelotti left so abruptly.
