Gareth Barry recently suggested that even at 33, Martinez was still broadening his education and Baines was quick to share those sentiments.
"I would definitely agree with Gareth," he said. "As a group I think everyone will have learnt a lot from the manager.
"I have never worked under anyone like him. He is always introducing new things and he has so many ideas about how to play the game.
"I think we are all still learning and for someone like Gaz - with the experience he has - to have said what he did, you can get no higher praise than that."
