Everton star unfazed by managerial appointment

Published Add your comment

Everton defender Phil Jagielka has revealed he has no concerns over who the next manager to arrive at Goodison Park will be.

David Moyes left the club earlier this month to take over at Manchester United after eight years with the Toffees.

Since then, Roberto Martinez has been strongly linked with the position, while Jurgen Klinsmann and Malky Mackay are also rumoured targets.

Jagielka told talkSPORT: "I'll be delighted with whoever comes in. Everton are a massive club and hopefully we can get a fantastic manager."

The 30-year-old joined the club following seven years with Sheffield United and he has made 215 Everton appearances since signing in 2007.

Former Wigan manager Martinez looks favourite for the position after he met Everton chairman Bill Kenwright and Martinez told BBC Radio 5 live that there could make an announcement "maybe Monday".

Martinez followed a successful playing career by becoming manager of Swansea City in 2007, before leaving for the DW Stadium two years later.

He led Wigan to FA Cup glory this season, but they were also relegated from the Premier League.
