Martinez welcomes scrutiny

Roberto Martinez insists he is the right man to lead Everton but accepts the board must consider his future at the club following a disappointing season.

Everton are without a win in seven matches and their poor run has left the club in the bottom half of the Premier League table.

Although a top-half finish is still possible, there have been reports that the board are considering Martinez's position, while fans are planning to stage a protest over the poor run of results when Everton host Bournemouth on Saturday.

Martinez admits the club is right to consider his future but he wants to be judged on the last three seasons rather than the last three months.

"I understand it completely. I never felt being Everton manager is a manager to be judged in an average position," Martinez said when asked about the board's scrutiny.

I encourage huge expectations. As a club, we have to drive for silverware and top four and when you aren't there the scrutiny needs to be there.

"It shouldn't be scrutiny of the last three months but instead the last three seasons. It's a scrutiny of the squad we have put together and scrutiny of how we play against the top teams.

"The first season we had a record points tally, last season we were the last team in the British game to be knocked out of Europe, this season we made two semi-finals.

"I'm ready to fight more than ever and closer, probably, to finding a way to challenge for silverware."
