Kevin Phillips insists Roberto Martinez has a good chance of taking the Tottenham job if he wins the Euros with Belgium this summer. 

The Sunderland legend, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, also claimed people have forgotten about his poor spell with Everton.

On Friday,  this site revealed that Tottenham are ‘cooling’ their interest in appointing the Spaniard.

This comes after Martinez, 47, made a ‘huge play’ to replace Jose Mourinho behind the scenes last week. 

It is understood Spurs are now confident of announcing an appointment shortly after the end of the domestic season.

Phillips claims Martinez’ stock will shoot up if he has a successful summer with Belgium and claims he is a good fit for Spurs.

“It depends how you judge him,” Phillips told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs.

“He didn’t do very well at Everton then all of a sudden he lands the Belgium job. He works with world-class players in a top team. 

“They are going to be up there as one of the favourites for the Euros this summer. If he was to do well this summer, he would have a great chance of taking the job. 

“That’s one name I hadn’t considered. His stock will go up if Belgium will the Euros, he is hot property. 

“He feels like a good fit, everyone has kind of forgotten what he did at Everton.”

Martinez managed Everton from 2013 until 2016 and was sacked despite leading the club to two domestic semi-finals in his final season.

He was then quickly hired as Belgium boss and later finished third in the 2018 World Cup.
