Liverpool thrashing moves Martinez closer to Everton exit
The pressure was on Everton boss Roberto Martinez before last night’s derby with Liverpool, but after the Reds ran out easy 4-0 victors at Anfield, it’s becoming a matter of when not if the Spaniard will depart the blue half of Merseyside.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “It was always looking likely Martinez would move on this summer but the derby result has shortened the odds of an even swifter exit.
“As far as a replacement is concerned, Moyes is still the front runner although Pellegrini is also proving a popular bet.”
Defeat for the Blues however – United are favourites at 11/10 in 90 minutes – and time will surely be ticking on Martinez’s exit on a tenure of unfulfilled potential.
