Tottenham defender : I hope Martinez takes charge of Spurs

Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld would welcome Belgium coach Roberto Martinez as his club manager.

Alderweireld was asked ahead of Belgium's Euro 2021 warm-up against Croatia on Sunday about the prospects of his international boss taking over at his club with Martinez among the favourites to succeed Jose Mourinho.

"I can only say great things about him. The worst scenario would be that he doesn't go to Tottenham or be at the national team. I just want him to be one of the two," said 32-year-old Alderweireld.

"I don't know what the situation is. We have one goal right now, to win the Euros. Apart from that everything is on hold in terms of transfers, coaches.

"I don't have any influence on that anyway so I am glad he is here."
