Could Jurgen Klinsmann Replace Roberto Martinez at Everton?

Could Jurgen Klinsmann Replace Roberto Martinez at Everton?

Could Jurgen Klinsmann be attracting interest from Everton about becoming their next manager? Apparently that’s the talk from BT Sport commentator Ian Darke.

This is a first for us as we’ve heard nothing about the USMNT manager being lined up by the Goodison Park club.

And as it stands, Roberto Martinez is still the Everton boss despite reports that the club could cut ties with him at the end of a disappointing season.

Everton have underachieved this year, currently sitting 14th in the English Premier League table and well away from the European places.

But they are still in the FA Cup and if they could make it through the semi-finals to set up a Wembley final then it may just keep the Spaniard in a job.

According to Darke though, there is talk that if Martinez does leave then Klinsmann could take his spot – something we’re finding hard to believe considering the German’s recently troubles with the US national team:

USA failed to make the final of the Gold Cup last year after being shocked by Jamaica in the semi-finals and followed that up by losing out to Mexico in a one-off match to qualify for the 2017 Confederations Cup.

But arguably the worst recent result came as the US lost away to Guatemala last month – their first defeat to them since 1988 and the first time in history they’d been beaten by Guatemala in World Cup qualifying.

Somehow we find it hard to believe that Everton would be willing to let go of a proven manager in Martinez for someone who’s got just one season of managing a football club under his belt.
