Can't see the players liking him in charge. That'll never change.

Gary Lineker said: “Roberto Martínez is the new coach of Belgium. Wish him well in turning a side that plays really open into one that plays....really open.”

Taking the piss now........

“I felt this was a great opportunity, a great challenge, and I’m thankful to the Belgian FA,” he said. “I’ve been working with Belgian players and I’ve been intrigued by Belgian football, the talent of the Belgium players is there to be seen.

“I’m humbled, proud, honoured to be the head coach of Belgium as a country. It will be a special journey together, to support these players that have got the world at their feet.”

Then he goes on about teaching them to defend as well as attack. Jesus.

Hi-ho Silva. Martinez will be putting a syrupy spin on it to eager-eared Belgian journo's somewhere reet now.

Match report doesn't sound great

http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/match-reports/belgium-0-2-spain-roberto-8751280

This bit...

'At times players didn't look to fully know where they should be playing, and questions (already) will be asked of his tactics: Just who was meant to be sitting alongside Witsel? Why were the full-backs so wide? Why did the defence push so high throughout?

In his first match as an international boss, Martinez was found wanting. Certain members of the Belgian Federation could be forgiven for questioning if this is what they signed on for.'

Will he have them sorted for Cyprus? Drumroll......

'Belgium won a game despite having Roberto Martínez in charge! But it was against Cyprus!' The Guardian

Don't you like money then?

Not really. Missus did though.
