Stan Collymore responds on Twitter to Aston Villa fans who want Roberto Martinez

Roberto Martinez Press Conference Considered

Everton have sacked Roberto Martinez - and some Aston Villa fans would want him.

Former Aston Villa ace and Villa fan Stan Collymore has suggested on Twitter that Roberto Martinez isn't the right man for the club to appoint this summer.

Villa parted ways with manager Remi Garde after less than five months in the job back in March, and having seen their relegation to the Championship confirmed with caretaker boss Eric Black at the helm, Villa must now find a new manager.

A host of names have been mentioned, including Nigel Pearson, Steve Bruce, David Moyes and even Roberto Di Matteo, but a new name to throw in the mix is Roberto Martinez.

The Spaniard lost his job as Everton boss on Thursday afternoon, having picked up just six points in his final ten Premier League games, with a 3-0 defeat away at Sunderland on Wednesday evening proving to be his final game in charge of the Toffees.

Still only 42 and with some impressive times at Swansea, Wigan and even Everton in his first season, Martinez may be in demand for other jobs - but Stan Collymore isn't so keen on the idea of him arriving at Villa Park this summer.

Collymore, a Villa fan and former striker, took to Twitter to suggest that, whilst some Villa fans have been tipping Martinez for the job, his poor defensive record with Wigan and Everton doesn't lend itself to managing in the Championship.

Collymore added that with Villa's current squad, a defence under Martinez could be laughable, suggesting he is dead against the Spaniard replacing Garde.
