Everton boss Martinez: Messi job convinced me about Besic

Everton boss Roberto Martinez has recalled the moment he chose to sign Muhamed Besic.

Martinez admits seeing Besic mark Lionel Messi in Bosnia's World Cup clash with Argentina.

The manager said: "He marked Messi out of the game in the first half,' Martinez recalled, as he explained why he had to sign Besic for £4million from Ferencvaros last summer.

"I first became aware of him as a young boy at Hamburg. He's a young man with incredible potential."
