Robinson reacts to Tottenham manager update as Martinez stance revealed

Roberto Martinez is “definitely an option” to take over at Tottenham, according to Paul Robinson.

However, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former England number one stressed there is a “huge difference” between managing Belgium and Spurs.

This site revealed last month that Martinez, 47, was on a list of potential candidates to succeed Jose Mourinho.

According to The Sun, the former Everton and Wigan manager is open to a return to Premier League management and would consider leaving Belgium after the Euros.

Robinson questioned Martinez’s pedigree even though he has managed some of the world’s biggest stars with Belgium.

“Martinez is definitely an option,” he told Football Insider.

“He has a lot of experience managing world-class players at international level. But then again, how hard is it to manager the Belgium national team given the players at his disposal? It is all about man-management.

“It is similar to the England team in the sense that the starting XI picks itself bar one of two players.

“There is a huge difference from managing Belgium to managing Spurs on a weekly basis.

“I am not so sure that he has the club credentials to do that, especially when you look at the way he left Everton.”

The Toffees sacked Martinez in May 2016 after three years in charge.

In his first season at Goodison Park he led Everton to fifth in the league table after accumulating 72 points – it remains his best ever Premier League finish.
