Martinez hoping to bring ´characters´ to Everton

17 June 2013 19:16

Everton boss Roberto Martinez has highlighted "character" as the most important quality that he will look for in potential recruits.

The Spaniard is yet to make a signing since agreeing a four-year deal at Goodison Park but he insisted that he is already eyeing new additions.

However, the 39-year-old has emphasised the importance of bringing in players with the right temperament and style.

"As you can imagine, that is something that you need to work early on and obviously the whole football club will work together towards that," he told EvertonTV.

"There is some work going on already and over the next few weeks we need to make sure that we bring the right characters as well as the right players to the football club.

"It's not going to be the case of bringing anyone at any time - it's important we identify the type of help we need in the dressing room and in the team and make sure they are a type of footballer who will fit in with the train of thought at Everton.

"It's more a matter of finding the right players and that will take a little bit of time."

Martinez also spoke of his desire to learn about new players and tactics during his upcoming trip to the FIFA Confederations Cup.

"I think the major events are a first for seeing players and ways of playing," he added.

"It's always a unique experience to see footballers under massive, massive pressure of representing their country and representing the expectations of a country and being able to play their football.

"There are always footballers that catch your eye under those circumstances.

"I always like to follow the big events and to do that with the name of Everton and opening new markets with Everton, it will be a real enjoyment and something I'm really looking forward to."
