Martinez Strives For Silverware
New boss says winning trophies is an 'addictive feeling'.
Roberto Martinez admits he has developed an “addictive feeling” for winning silverware.
The new Everton boss masterminded an FA Cup final upset when his former side Wigan Athletic shocked big spending Manchester City in the FA Cup final in May.
Now the Spaniard is tasked with bringing that triumphant feeling to Goodison Park – a challenge he is relishing.
In an exclusive interview, Martinez told evertontv: “Once you win silverware it is an addictive feeling. I do feel that that is something we want to continue here.
“At Everton, with the significance, tradition and history, it [winning silverware] needs to be part of our DNA. We all know how difficult it is to win silverware but it is important to start setting those goals as dreams.”
Martinez insists his own lessons, coupled with the experience and desire within the current Blues squad, can propel Everton closer to realising their aspirations.
He added: “It is something where we can drive each other on to achieve, because it is important that we can share those emotions and feelings together.
“Clearly, once you get that taste you want more and we need to make sure that we get that together at Everton.”
