Roberto Martinez has revealed that he would like to add Joe Royle to his backroom staff.

The Spaniard has identified a position within the Academy which he feels would perfectly suit the former Everton player and manager.

Royle, a Club legend, scored 119 goals for Everton in 275 appearances and later guided the Toffees to FA Cup glory in 1995 during his tenure as manager.

And Martinez believes this experience would be of significant benefit to Everton’s emerging talents – should Royle decide to join the Blues for a third time.

Martinez told evertontv: “Joe is someone we identified who would be fantastic in a role we want to create. There is a real need for a figure that is an Evertonian and knows the football club.

“He is someone who has been a manager and has been through a lot of experiences and can now concentrate on giving that final piece of advice to help try and develop a young player. We need to do that.

“The work we do in the academy is phenomenal and we need to help young players get through that process and to try and get them into the first-team. And if we can’t do that, we need to get them into the professional game. Joe Royle could be a perfect fit for that role.”

Richard PorterWhat a great move good on you Roberto to bring Joe Royle back to Goodison.
