Roberto Martinez claims that Everton chairman Bill Kenwright will make the right decision on selling the Blues – regardless of who a potential new buyer is.
News has broken in the past 24 hours that American investors John Jay Moores and Charles Noell are edging closer to completing a £200m takeover of the Toffees.
The rumours have divided fans, with some Evertonians pointing towards the Americans’ unsuccessful attempt to invest in Swansea City in late 2014.
But Martinez believes that Kenwright, who took charge of the Blues back in 1999, still has the club’s best interests at heart.
And the Spaniard is of the opinion that the theatre impresario deserves more credit for his running of his beloved Blues.
Martinez said: “All I can say is that every Evertonian has to know that the club is in fantastic hands.
“Sometimes, and I have said it many times, I don’t think the chairman gets the credit that he deserves.
“He loves the football club. I don’t think that there are many owners of football clubs that have the right values and the right attachment to their football clubs.
“He is an Evertonian, he is an out and out fan and he grew up at Goodison.
“And whatever is going to happen is going to happen for the good of the football club.
“If there is a takeover, or if there is not a takeover, the future I can guarantee to everyone is in fantastic hands.
“We have terrific young players coming through, we have a really special group of people here and whatever will happen will be good news for every fan.”
