Kendall tips Martinez to succeed at Everton

25 June 2013 19:13

Former Everton manager Howard Kendall believes Roberto Martinez is the right man to lead the club to future success.

Kendall oversaw a period of success for the Merseyside club during the 1980s, including lifting the top-flight title in 1985 and 1987.

And the 67-year-old is confident the newly appointed Spaniard can emulate the success he had at Goodison Park, and guide the team to honours.

"I think he will do an excellent job," Kendall told the club's official website.

"The job he did at Wigan, keeping them in the league for so long, and the attractive way he plays football, I'm sure the fans will like that. He's (also coming here) on the back of an FA Cup win.

"I've met him a number of times and he is a true gentleman. I'm sure he will do well.

"I have been impressed and I think (chairman) Bill Kenwright was impressed as well. He must have been.

"I think for Roberto, it's the right time for him. He's been linked with a number of clubs previously but it's the right time to come into the big time."

Martinez guided Wigan Athletic to their first ever major title when they beat Manchester City in the final of the FA Cup last season, and previously was in charge of Swansea City.
