“Rumors are part of football”
Joined by Eurosport France, Martinez reacted to this rumor. He has neither denied nor confirmed but his statement suggests that he is not interested in this responsibility. At least not for now: “As you can imagine, there is nothing, really nothing, for me to comment on. Obviously, there are always rumors, they are always there. This is normal in football. When you lose three matches, rumors say you are going to lose your job. When things are going well, when you have good results, there are also rumors. But there is nothing to comment about me at this time. “
Note that Martinez has never coached in his country. He started his coaching career in Wales, near Swansea. He then took care of Wigan and Everton before taking the reins of the Red Devils.
