Everton fans react as Martinez linked with Real Madrid

Loads of Everton fans have been reacting to some rather bizarre news, as reports claim Roberto Martinez is in the running to become the new Real Madrid boss.

Real Madrid fired Julen Lopetegui earlier this week, replacing the ex-Spain boss with Santiago Solari.

Solari has been managing the Madrid B team for the last two years after coaching the youth side between 2013 and 2016, and has been handed the role as caretaker manager.

While there are plenty of names being linked with the permanent job, Everton fans are stunned as reports claim Martinez could well be on the list.

According to the Telegraph, Real Madrid are targeting the Belgium boss after Antonio Conte ruled himself out.

Conte was heavily linked with the position but there were concerns about his defensive style, and Martinez would certainly bring open, expansive football to the Bernabeu.

Of course, Everton fans found out all too quickly that Martinez’s football is slightly too open, and they can’t believe he’s in the running to manage the biggest club in the world.
