What The Papers Say - 6 June

The views on this page are taken from the local and national media and do not necessarily reflect the views of Everton.

There is widespread coverage of Roberto Martinez’s appointment as Everton manager in Thursday’s newspapers.

The majority of the nationals (Daily Mail, Daily Telegraph, Daily Express, The Independent and Daily Star) report on the Spaniard’s ambition to take his new employers into the Champions League.

The Guardian’s report on yesterday’s press conference features quotes from Martinez about his honour in taking up the reins at Goodison Park, with the 39-year-old saying he feels ‘privileged’ to become the 14th manager of the football club.

The Daily Mirror say that Chairman Bill Kenwright recognised Martinez was a special talent after watching Wigan Athletic overcome Manchester City in last month’s FA Cup final.

In The Times, Martinez says he would be ‘foolish’ not to seek advice from David Moyes, insisting that he will be ‘picking the brain’ of the Blues’ former boss before officially taking control at the Club on 1 July.

In the Liverpool Echo, Martinez speaks about the Everton fans and how he recalls the way they clapped his Wigan Athletic team off the pitch at Goodison Park following the FA Cup quarter-final tie in March. Martinez explains it was a ‘real sign of class’ from the Evertonians.

Meanwhile, the Daily Mirror are saying that Phil Neville will turn down a coaching role at Everton, the manager’s position at Brighton & Hove Albion and a media career to become part of Moyes’ backroom team at Manchester United.
