Everton has today confirmed it has signed a new five-year contract with manager Roberto Martinez.

Under the new deal Martinez, who joined from Wigan Athletic just over a year ago, will remain at the Club until at least the end of the 2018/19 season.

In his first season at Goodison Park, Martinez received widespread praise for introducing a new style of play at the Club, overseeing 21 league wins which resulted in the recording of Everton’s highest Premier League points tally. It ensured a fifth-place finish in the table and taking the Blues back into European competition for the first time since 2009/10.

Speaking on the new deal Martinez said: “I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to make a further commitment to Everton. I loved my first season at the Club. I could not be more proud of the way Everton performed throughout the entire season and the memories we were able to make together.

“I am really excited about next season. I knew from the moment I arrived at Everton that this was a special place and I’d like to thank everyone associated with the Club, the board, all the staff, the players and our brilliant supporters for believing in me and giving me the opportunity to build on the traditions and success of this great Club.”

Chairman Bill Kenwright, who brought Martinez to Everton last year, said: “In many commentators’ eyes, Roberto Martinez is the best young manager in Europe. We agree. He took on an unfamiliar challenge for most managers; to take something really good and make it even better.  

“He has succeeded. In his debut season he broke our Premier League record points haul, got us back into Europe and developed some of the most exciting young footballers in the game.

“He conducts himself off the pitch in the same way. He undertakes his business with great style, confidence, positivity and class. He is an Everton man.

“There is no magical ingredient to what we do at Everton. We’re a football club and we recognise the fundamental importance of our manager.  

“And, when we find our man, we empower him. We support and provide him with everything at our disposal. We commit to our managers, and we’re immensely pleased that Roberto has committed to us. We want the best because only the best will do.

“Unswervingly, we trust Roberto Martinez to take our Club forward.  To use one of his favourite words we are ‘excited’ about our future. We have Roberto at the helm. Sólo lo mejor!”
