Martinez said: âYou could never tell that he has played 502 games in the Premier League and he is a player who maybe doesnât get the credit from the outside that he deserves.
"I wouldnât say he has got anything to prove to England. Heâs won the league, the FA Cup and played a big part with England. Heâs still got a lot to offer. I donât see why he shouldnât play an important part for any team.
âRoy Hodgson has been very good with Ross Barkley, very good with Phil Jagielka and Leighton Baines. Iâm sure he knows Gareth Barry can give him something different. He is an experienced international.â
