 Martinez unveiled as new coach by Everton

Roberto Martinez has been officially named as new Everton manager to replace David Moyes.

The Spaniard, who has led his former side Wigan to their first ever FA Cup triumph this season, has signed a four-year deal with the Toffees after the clubs agreed a compensation package of £1.5 million for the move.

Martinez revealed he is delighted to be appointed Everton manager, stating: “This is a really special day to come to Everton Football Club. The feeling already is one of excitement and honour. I want to thank the Chairman and the Board for giving me this opportunity. This is a phenomenal and passionate football club, and I can’t wait to start.

“It’s been a phenomenal time at Wigan, and I enjoyed every second of it, but after four years it was the right time. After I met the Chairman, I knew that Everton was the right football club so it has been a natural transition. It’s the right time now to be involved in such an exciting challenge,” he added.

Good luck to Everton! Doubts that anyone can do better than Moyes mind the funds
