Sections of Everton fans post how they would feel if Martinez won World Cup with Belgium

Roberto Martinez was a much-loved figure among the Everton faithful in the early stages of his career as manager at Goodison Park.

The Spaniard implemented a style of football that was easy on the eye and he managed to avoid defeat in his first six games in charge.

The 2013-14 campaign was a positive one for the Toffees as Martinez guided them to fifth in the Premier League table, but the club were unable to repeat that feat in the following season.

The Merseyside outfit lingered towards the relegation zone but managed to escape a drop into the Championship.

In the 2015-16 season, Martinez started getting on the wrong side of the fans, with many calling for his head before the campaign came to a close.

With just one match left on the calendar, Everton made the decision to part ways with the Spaniard, who left the Toffees in 12th at the time.

Just three months later, Martinez took over as Belgium head coach, and at the moment he is experiencing a good run as the team have made it into the quarter-finals of the World Cup in Russia.

The Red Devils completed their job in dramatic fashion as Nacer Chadli nabbed the winner in a 3-2 triumph over Japan deep into stoppage time.

After the result, some Everton fans took to Reddit to express how they would feel if Martinez took Belgium all the way, and the majority hope that he does despite his dismal final months as Toffees boss.
