Everton fans react on Twitter to Roberto Martinez's comments on Leighton Baines

Everton defender Leighton Baines recently stated that there was no chemistry in the squad.

Everton supporters have criticised the way that Roberto Martinez has dealt with Leighton Baines’ recent comments to the press on social media site Twitter.

Baines suggested that Everton’s squad had no chemistry (Liverpool Echo), after they were beaten 1-0 by Manchester United in their latest outing.

And Martinez revealed to the Liverpool Echo at his press conference this morning that he had words with Baines for his public admission.

“I’ve had a chat with him and he knows he has to take responsibility for those words,” the Spanish boss said. “He’s apologised and taken responsibility for leaving those words open."

Baines’ comments were largely supported by Everton fans, after he made them, with the club’s fan base suggesting that it was nice to hear the truth about their poor form.

They have, therefore, been left frustrated about the action that Martinez has taken while dealing with the left-back.

Martinez’s positon as Everton manager is coming under increasing scrutiny by the week, as the Merseyside club have badly disappointed this season.

The Toffees are currently in 12th place in the Premier League table, with their next match coming against Watford at the weekend.
