Manager Profile

A limited player, Roberto Martinez has flourished as a manager and earned quite a reputation with his pleasing on the eye style of football.

Martinez helped guide Swansea to the League One title in 2008 before controversially returning to the club he represented as a player, Wigan, in 2009.

Wigan would go on to win the FA Cup in 2012/13 but relegation followed a few weeks later and Martinez promptly joined Everton.

Martinez was sacked just before the end of the 2015/16 campaign, and was then linked with a number of clubs throughout the summer, before he surprisingly became the new Belgium boss.

Roberto Martinez Quotes

As a manager you need to run a football club as if you are going to be here for 100 years.

A player must sleep for eight hours and if I can prove that he has not slept for eight hours he will get a fine.

You need to see a player and fall in love with a player. It's a gut instinct.
