Roberto Martinez: Led Wigan to FA Cup glory but also took them down

The Spaniard, who won the FA Cup with Wigan this season but also presided over a relegation campaign, succeeds David Moyes at Goodison Park.

Having led to club to a top-eight finish in nine of his 11 full seasons in charge, Moyes could prove a tough act to follow.

Sky Bet subsequently offer 11/4 that Martinez leaves his post before the end of the 2013/14 season. He's 10/1 to have gone by Christmas but 1/4 to still be there next May.

The Leeds-based firm also make Martinez a 9/1 chance to be August's Premier League manager of the month, while his new club are 5/1 to go winless in their first three games of the new campaign. The fixtures are announced on June 19.

The Toffees are also 9/4 to qualify for Europe next season and 10/1 to win any trophy.

Sky Bet's Chris Spicer said: "Most Everton fans seem to be giving Martinez their backing, but we believe they'll be more vulnerable to relegation than they were under David Moyes, cutting their price for the drop from 25/1 to 22/1.

"It's still a long shot but he's spent the large majority of his Premier League days in the bottom third of the table and we go 11/10 that he signs any player he suffered relegation with at Wigan during this summer's transfer window."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
