Gerard Deulofeu believes his current manager at Everton is good enough to become the new FC Barcelona boss.
The on-loan Bara youngster has enjoyed a productive campaign on Merseyside under the guidance of Martinez and believes he has what it takes to take over the helm at the Camp Nou.
That would be great, really.
But I think it is complicated. Tata Martino has one year more contract still. So we will see. ” Deulofeu came up through the youth ranks at Barca’s famed academy ‘La Masia’ and is regarded as one of the club’s brightest prospects. The 20-year-old is certain that Martinez is capable of holding down such a demanding job due what he has demonstrated at his previous clubs. Anyway, I believe Roberto would be up to be Barcelona’s coach as he has shown that in the teams he has been, it has done it well,” he told IBTimes.
Martinez was born and raised in the Catalan town of Balaguer before moving to Real Zaragoza where he began his professional career.
He has thoroughly impressed in his managerial spells at Swansea, Wigan and now Everton. His style of play is based on Barcelona’s philosophy and many in the Catalan capital regard him as a possible future manager.
