Exclusive: Paul Jewell claims Martinez would play the right football at Spurs

Tottenham Hotspur are still on the hunt for their next manager and Roberto Martinez has constantly been linked with the job and former Wigan Athletic manager, Paul Jewell, believes that a good Euros campaign could help his case.

Martinez has had three spells as a manager in England having been in charge at Swansea City, Wigan Athletic and Everton before he took up the job as the Belgium national team’s manager.

Should Spurs appoint Martinez?





The Spaniard played attacking and possession-based football which always saw his teams score a lot of goals, but this came at a cost as they often leaked a high number of goals in their own goal.

There has been a fresh twist in the Tottenham manager saga as it emerged that Martinez is in continued in talks with the club over becoming their new manager after the Euros, and Jewell believes that he would play good football at Tottenham, speaking exclusively to Football FanCast on the topic:

“He always likes his teams to play good football and he’s done a terrific job at Belgium, with fantastic players though, I have to say.

What you usually find is that after the Euros or World Cup, there’s a manager who does really well and all of a sudden they’re the favourite for all the top jobs in Europe. So that might happen to Roberto.”

Who scored Tottenham's first Premier League goal of the season?

Several managers have been linked with the job including Erik ten Hag, who only signed a one-year extension at Ajax last month, but Spurs could still persuade him to move to London.

Another strong candidate that has been linked is Graham Potter, who Spurs Chief Scout Steve Hitchen recommended as his number one choice to Daniel Levy.
