Roberto Martinez's response when asked whether he's confident he won't be sacked by Everton this week


Roberto Martinez is under serious pressure as manager of Everton.

Roberto Martinez has avoided the question when asked by the Liverpool Echo whether he was confident he would avoid the sack as Everton boss for another week.

Martinez’s position as Everton manager is under serious pressure, after what has been a disastrous week for the Merseyside club.

The Toffees were first beaten 4-0 by Liverpool, before losing their FA Cup semi-final against Manchester United 2-1.

The calls for Martinez to be sacked are now growing louder, and there have been suggestions that he could leave at any point in the coming days. And when the Spaniard was asked when he was confident whether he would still be in the job for Everton’s match against Bournemouth on Saturday, he remained coy.

“You’re asking the wrong man, from my point of view," he said. 

Everton have made it to the semi-finals of both the League Cup and the FA Cup this season, but it is their poor league form which has frustrated.

The Toffees are currently sat in 11th place in the Premier League table, and that position does not reflect the quality that they have in their squad.

The Sun have suggested that Eddie Howe is one of the leading candidates to take over from Martinez, if the Toffees do decide to part company with him.
