Belgium boss Martinez breaks silence on Barcelona talk

Belgium boss Roberto Martinez says he won't walk out on the job.

Martinez is being linked with Barcelona amid doubts over Ernesto Valverde's future.

"I won't say yes to any team without first talking with [the president of the Royal Belgian Football Federation,] Bart [Verhaeghe,] and [the vice-president,] Mehdi [Bayat]," he said.

Martinez didn't clarify whether he was contacted by Barcelona, but neither did he rule out a potential move to the Calatan side this summer.

The Blaugrana board and Josep Maria Bartomeu, Barcelona's president, have been contemplating Valverde's future this week.
