Belgium coach Martinez: Everton need reality check

Belgium coach Roberto Martinez has urged Everton to be realistic about where they stand in the game.

The former Toffees manager believes Everton must take a long, hard look at themselves, and realise where they want to be - in the top four - cannot be a short-term plan.

“I will love Everton for the rest of my life, and I want them to have success. You do the job 24 hours a day and you feel exactly what the fans feel," he told the Mirror.

“My plan was to unleash the potential and get silverware and we could have done it. They can still do it, but they need to set their standard, have things very clear and allow the fans to understand it can't be a quick fix.

“You can't have a situation where you are surviving every defeat. The fans are the most important ingredient of every club, so you have to take them with you on the long term vision and project of the club."
