Boyce: Everton should appoint Martinez

29 May 2013 13:32

Wigan defender Emmerson Boyce believes Everton should opt for Roberto Martinez as their new manager.

The Spaniard has been given permission by Wigan chairman Dave Whelan to discuss a move to another club with Everton touted as a likely destination following David Moyes' departure to Manchester United.

Boyce, who was part of Martinez's side that won the FA Cup against Manchester City earlier this month, believes his qualities make him an ideal appointment for any Premier League club.

"For Wigan it’s a massive blow (to lose Martinez). He brought a brand of football to Wigan that not many have seen, in that a team near the bottom played such attractive football," Boyce told talkSPORT.

"His knowledge of the game is excellent and tactically he’s very good, as he showed (in the FA Cup Final) against Manchester City.

"If he goes to Everton, or any other club, they will have a very, very good manager."

While Martinez secured Wigan the FA Cup, he was unable to save the club from relegation to the Championship and told chairman Dave Whelan he doesn't feel capable of securing a return to the top-flight next term.
