Martinez said: â€śYou could never tell that he has played 502 games in the Premier League and he is a player who maybe doesnâ€™t get the credit from the outside that he deserves.
"I wouldnâ€™t say he has got anything to prove to England. Heâ€™s won the league, the FA Cup and played a big part with England. Heâ€™s still got a lot to offer. I donâ€™t see why he shouldnâ€™t play an important part for any team.
â€śRoy Hodgson has been very good with Ross Barkley, very good with Phil Jagielka and Leighton Baines. Iâ€™m sure he knows Gareth Barry can give him something different. He is an experienced international.â€ť
