Sharp does a u-turn on Martinez

Graeme_Sharp_and_NSNOEverton legend Grame Sharp has done a bigger backtrack than he ever did as a player as he says he hopes Roberto Martinez can take the Blues to the next level.

A couple of weeks ago, Sharp was telling fans that Martinez wasn’t the right man for the Everton job, but now he feels the Spaniard has all the tools he needs at Everton to push on from where David Moyes left off.

“I think Roberto will do his own thing from an attacking point of view, but he’s inheriting a solid back-four,” said Sharp on the club’s official website.

“There’s been accusations that his Wigan team leaked too many goals, but when you look at them last year, they had a lot of injuries in the centre-back positions which didn’t help him.

“He’s now coming to a club that have a sound back-four and a sound goalkeeper, so hopefully that won’t be the problem area for him.

“Everyone knows he wants to play expansive football, so I’m sure the fans will be happy.

“I think the football we’ve seen over the last couple of years has been first-class with players like Steven Pienaar and Kevin Mirallas.

“He’s got the tools there, Roberto. Whether he does make one or two tweaks, we’ll have to see. Certainly, looking to the future, hopefully we can continue to improve. He’s got a fantastic job and hopefully he can take the club onto the next level.”
