Tottenham continue talks with Roberto Martinez to take over next season
According to Daily Mail, Tottenham are still in discussions with Roberto Martinez as the club try to find a permanent manager ahead of next season. The Belgium manager is keen on a return to club management after the Euros as Spurs try to convince him to take the hot seat after the tournament.
The North Londoners are on the lookout for a new manager following the sacking of Jose Mourinho. Ryan Mason was appointed as the caretaker manager as he saw out the current campaign in a mixed manner.
Roberto Martinez is a seasoned manager with previous Premier League experience. He managed both Wigan Athletic and Everton in the top flight before taking over Belgium. The Europeans are currently the number one team in the world. The Spaniard led Belgium to their best-ever World Cup finish in the 2018 FIFA World Cup when they beat England in the third-place play-off.
Now, it looks like he could be on his way back to England and club management. It has been reported that Martinez has spoken to his friends about a return to club management and that he has held discussions with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy. Nothing is finalized yet as Martinez is scheduled to take charge of Belgium for the Euros.

It is hard to predict how Martinez will perform if he is appointed. Fans would not have envisaged Mauricio Pochettino to take the club to a Champions League final when he was appointed. Neither would they have expected Jose Mourinho to be sacked within 17 months. Nonetheless, Martinez looks like a promising candidate from the up.
