Roberto Martinez remains Confident on Club Position

Roberto Martinez remains defiant that he is in a stronger position at the club than when he arrived.

The 42-year-old took over at Everton in 2013 having to build on an impressive job done by David Moyes. Even though the Scot did not get Everton playing in a beautiful and attractive manner, he was imperious at getting the results even on a tight budget. Martinez had little experience at the top level after having previously been in charge of lower league clubs like Swansea City and Wigan, which only later turned out to be Premier League teams.

After having achieved great things in his first two years at the club, Martinez is finding a lot of opposition towards the end of 2015-16 season. This is especially bad for the Spaniard given that the club recently underwent a takeover of a billionaire owner. As with every other club in recent history, there is a managerial change involved sooner or later when a billionaire owner arrives. This coupled with Everton’s poor form in the last few months has raised questions about Martinez being the manager of the club for the new season. On the positive side, the 42-year-old has managed to bring attractive football but to Goodison Park while also being the factor in signing big players like Romelu Lukaku.

"I know what I want for our football club, that is not going to change. I knew from the first day it wasn’t going to be straightforward and easy but after three seasons now. I am in a stronger position than I was the first day I arrived. When you are Everton manager, you are in a position where you have to take responsibility and I do that for our performances and results.We have had eight defeats at home and conceded 30 goals and that is not what we should be achieving,” said Martinez.
