Former Everton boss Roberto Martinez still in contention to be Tottenham Hotspur manager

According to Italian outlet Tutto Mercato (h/t Football.london), Roberto Martinez remains a candidate for the Tottenham Hotspur job as they continue their search for a new manager.

The report mentions that Paulo Fonseca to Tottenham is seemingly off. Spurs got close to naming the former AS Roma boss as their new manager as they look to finally replace Jose Mourinho, who was sacked in April.

But things have taken a turn with Fonseca now out of contention. Amid this, Martinez has emerged as a potential candidate as Daniel Levy favours Martinez’s extensive experience in English football. (h/t football.london)

Around three weeks back, a report by Daily Mail as covered by ToTheLaneAndBack, mentioned that Spurs are in contention to sign Martinez as their new boss. And it now seems like he has emerged as a target again.

Martinez back to England?

The Spaniard does have a lot of experience in English football. He has managed clubs at different ends of the Premier League table in West Bromwich Albion and Everton.

In total, he has managed 318 games for those two clubs, after starting out his career at Swansea. He is currently the manager of the Belgian national team at UEFA Euro 2020, a job that he took back in the summer of 2016.

The report also states that any potential move for the 47-year-old would not be made until the end of the Euros, which makes sense considering his side are one of the favourites in the competition.

Spurs fans would really be scratching their heads at this point. The club sacked a quality manager in Mourinho and it was expected that a manager with a similar pedigree may take over.
