Unbelievable: Everton fans react as Roberto Martinez is favourite for Barcelona job

Everton fans have taken to Twitter in disbelief after it was revealed by Catalan radio station RAC1 and that Roberto Martinez is the first option for the Barcelona job if Ernesto Valverde gets the sack.

Martinez managed the Toffees from 2013 to 2016 and helped the club get into the Europa League, whilst also embarking on a club-record seven game winning run during his first season.

The Spaniard was perhaps unjustly sacked in May 2016 with one game of the season remaining; Everton were in 12th and had made the semi-finals of both domestic cups that year.

It appears that a number of Everton fans on Twitter would echo that sentiment judging by their reactions on Twitter…
