Martinez and his team seem to be doing a really good job identifying some of the best young talent in the lower leagues, in Holgate, Matty Foulds etc and probably doesn't get the credit he deserves because they are long term investments for very little money. We're also beating other Premier League opposition for these players. Holgate was on his way to sign for Bournemouth and Martinez phoned him on the motorway and got him to turn the car around, and that was that.
I think he deserves credit for the ways he's supported and encouraged Stones, Barkley and Galloway. Not only has it made those players flourish, but it's demonstrating to young players around the country who we want to sign that this is a place you can come to and really develop, and eventually play at the highest level.
