Martinez becomes latest boss to rule out Manchester United move

Published 1 Comments

Everton boss Roberto Martinez has become the latest manager to rule himself out of the running to replace David Moyes at Manchester United.

Martinez was handed the opportunity of taking up a managerial role at Goodison Park after Moyes decided to join Manchester United.

The Spanish tactician is reportedly among the list of candidates being lined up to take up the reins at the Premier League champions, however Martinez has today told Manchester United he will not be following Moyes to Old Trafford.

"It's the same when you get a club looking at one of our players, you take it as a compliment and that's it," said Martinez.

"I'm very focused on what we have in our hands. I've never been someone who says I want to manage here I want to manage there, I'd love to go back home and do this.

"The rumours and speculation are nothing to comment on, I've learned that over years.

"I think I've shown over the years that's not what motivates me, to get to the next train as quick as we can. It's always about making sure the club is right and everything is in order."

Martinez's declaration comes just days after Jurgen Klopp, Carlo Ancelotti and Pep Guardiola stated they were content at Dortmund, Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has also refuted claims he would be willing to abandon the Stamford Bridge hot-seat to fill the void left by Moyes at Old Trafford.

Louis van Gaal remains the clear favourite to replace Moyes - with Sky Bet placing him at 4/6 to become the next permanent manager of Manchester United.
