Martinez refuses to rule out Barcelona job

Belgium boss Roberto Martinez has refused to rule out a move to Barcelona this summer.

Martinez is reportedly being considered by the Spanish champions as a potential replacement for Ernesto Valverde, who could lose his job at Camp Nou ahead of the 2019-20 campaign.

The former Everton manager has responded to the rumours by claiming that he would not make any decision on his future without first talking to the Belgian Football Federation.

“I won’t say yes to any team without first talking with [the president of the Royal Belgian Football Federation] Bart [Verhaeghe] and [the vice-president] Mehdi [Bayat],” Marca quotes Martinez as saying.

Barca retained the La Liga title during the 2018-19 campaign but lost to Liverpool in the semi-finals of the Champions League and Valencia in last weekend’s Copa del Rey final.

Martinez, who has managed Swansea City, Wigan Athletic and Everton at club level, guided Belgium to the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup.
