Everton fans have taken to Twitter to react to the news that Roberto Martinez has been appointed as the new manager of Belgium.

Everton sacked the Spaniard before the end of last season after a disappointing year from the Blues.

He led them to an 11th placed finish for the second successive season, a position that many felt was far below where a squad such of their quality should be finishing.

Indeed, he left Goodison Park under something of a cloud, with large sections of the fans protesting against him for several weeks before his sacking.

And their reaction on Twitter to his appointment for Belgium was a clear indication of their feelings about their former manager.

It will certainly be interesting to see how Everton’s Belgian duo of Kevin Mirallas and Romelu Lukaku fare under their former manager in the national side.

The former will likely be worrying about his future given the manner in which he fell out with Martinez over the last year at Everton.

That falling out saw him exiled from the Blues team and lose out on a place at Euro 2016 this summer, and he will be praying this appointment doesn’t spell an end to his international career.
