Roberto Martinez sends message to Everton fans and Tim Howard

Everton will take on Norwich City in the Premier League this afternoon.

Roberto Martinez has wished Everton via the League Managers Association’s official website the best of luck for today’s match against Norwich City.

Everton will take on Norwich at Goodison Park in what is their last Premier League game of the season.

Martinez will not be in charge of the match, as he parted company with the Toffees on Thursday. The Spaniard hopes that the Merseyside outfit pick up all three points from the encounter.

The former Wigan Athletic boss has also wished departing Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard the best of luck for his future.

The 37-year-old former Manchester United custodian will leave the Merseyside outfit in the summer to join Major League Soccer outfit Colorado Rapids.

"I appreciate that over the last eight weeks our league results haven’t been up to the levels that we would expect," Martinez wrote on the League Managers Association’s official website. "However, over the past three years the support the fans have given to me and the team has been inspiring.

"I know that the team and the fans will react well against Norwich today and I wish everyone the best of luck for 3 points which would match last season's League points tally.

"Finally I would like to congratulate Tim Howard on his outstanding contribution and career at the club. Tim has been an incredible ambassador for Everton and I wish him well for his future in the MLS."

Everton have had a disappointing season and are set to finish outside the top 10 of the Premier League.

Martinez is a good manager, but the Toffees struggled defensively and conceded far too many goals.

Hopefully for the Spaniard, he will find a new managerial job, and hopefully that will be in the Premier League.
