Everton boss Martinez: Barkley talent has no ceiling

Everton boss Roberto Martinez can't see Ross Barkley's talent having a ceiling.

Barkley, 19, made his international debut as a substitute in England's 4-0 win over Moldova last week.

And Martinez said: "I am extremely excited about his future because I think he can reach unseen levels."

Barkley suffered a double leg break while on duty with England under-19s in October 2010 and his club manager claims that injury hell HELPED him.

"It's given him a unique maturity for such a young man," he said. "He's been through absolutely everything and that's made him who he is today."
