Jurgen Klinsmann will not be getting the Everton job - according to the man himself

A 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace hasn't done much to take the heat off beleaguered Everton boss Roberto Martinez.

The Toffees manager is one of the favourites to leave his post at the end of the season after three years of mediocrity on Merseyside.

Their home form has been particularly woeful, and at times, their defence has been in complete disarray, with only the goals of Romelu Lukaku keeping them afloat.

Speculation mounts

Unsurprisingly, that has led to rife speculation that Martinez will be replaced by Everton's new owners.

All sorts of big names are being thrown around, but one World Cup legend has already ruled himself out of the running.

Jurgen Klinsmann, the former Germany striker and manager, has quickly dismissed rumours of his imminent arrival at Goodison Park.

The USA head coach knows the Premier League well thanks to his playing days at Tottenham, but judging by his post on Twitter, he has no intention of replacing Martinez, writing:

"Rumours are wrong! Not going anywhere and Everton FC has a fantastic manager in Roberto Martinez!"

That clears that up then.

'Martinez out'

It might come as a disappointment to Toffees fans, though, as the German - who coached his country to a 3rd place finish in the 2006 World Cup - is highly-rated and is often in demand. 

Everton moved up to 12th place with a draw at Palace, but that is nowhere near good enough for Martinez's baying critics, who inevitably unfurled a 'Martinez Out' banner after last weekend's 1-1 draw with Watford.

Under David Moyes, the club reached the lofty heights of the Champions League, and regularly found themselves among the top six. Expectations lowered when Moyes left for Manchester United, but they are not quite so low that this season's performances have been acceptable to their fans.

An FA Cup win might be enough to save Martinez, but if Everton finish in the bottom half and without any silverware, there may well be a new face in the hot seat next season.

If it's not going to be Klinsmann, then at least they have the small matter of an FA Cup semi-final against Manchester United to look forward to.
