It Was Only a Matter of Time Before Everyone Started Linking Roberto Martinez to Celtic

It Was Only a Matter of Time Before Everyone Started Linking Roberto Martinez to Celtic

Roberto Martinez was sacked as Everton manager earlier today – and now a serious amount of supporters seem to reckon he could be on his way to Celtic.

The Spaniard was relieved of his duties at Goodison Park on Thursday afternoon, following two underwhelming seasons.

It appears Wednesday night’s 3-0 defeat at lowly Sunderland was a step too far from the Toffees’ power brokers, who swiftly gave the former Wigan manager his marching orders. 

But with Celtic currently searching for a proven coach to take over from the outgoing Ronny Deila, some fans have put two and two together and seem to have worked out that Martinez could be just the man for the job.

Martinez – a former Motherwell player – was linked with Celtic during his time as Swansea City manager, with the Hoops reportedly interested in taking him to Parkhead before appointing Neil Lennon in 2010.

It never happened back then, but it looks like a fair few people think there’s a chance it could happen now:

Celtic fans – would Martinez make a good Celtic manager?
