Tottenham Hotspur legend Graham Roberts does not like the idea of the club appointing Roberto Martinez as manager.
Sky Sports, via The Daily Mail, reported earlier this week that the former Everton boss has entered into talks with Spurs over the possibility of replacing Jose Mourinho as the club’s manager.
It remains to be seen if he will reach an agreement with the club, as he is set to manage Belgium in the European Championships this summer.
Should Tottenham hire Martinez?
Roberts, though, doubts the potential appointment of the former Wigan Athletic boss.
Indeed, he does not think that his CV will be that appealing for Spurs, as he has yet to win anything with Belgium, and only succeeded at a small club.
Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, the UEFA Cup winner said: “Why would you go for a foreign manager that you know nothing of?
“Martinez, Wigan, okay, little club. Belgium manager, if you can’t manage those players at Belgium then well… If he doesn’t win the trophy this year he’s failed because he’s got the best players. That’s not for me.”
Indeed, Martinez has only ever won the FA Cup during his career, though he did guide Swansea City to promotion from League One in 2007/08.
Belgium also finished third at the 2018 World Cup.
