Everton boss Roberto Martinez is happy to be finally on Merseyside.

Last year, Martinez famously turned down the Liverpool job while in charge of Wigan Athletic.

“It's been a question asked many times,” Martinez told evertontv.

“Things in life happen for a reason and it was well-documented that summer. It was a time of trying to find out what was next from my point of view and Wigan Athletic at that time.

“Everything ended up that it wasn't the right time or the right move. I always believe everything in football and life happens for a reason and I am extremely proud and honoured to be manager of Everton.”
