Reports yesterday claimed that if West Ham managed to defeat Everton in the FA Cup 3rd Round today, Martinez’s position could become untenable and the Daily Mail believe it is the former England boss and FC Twente man Steve McClaren who they want to replace him with.
Martinez has seen his side plummet from the heights they were reaching last season in the Premier League to sit 12th in the league and are currently suffering a four match losing streak.
Derby County have responded to the rumours by seeing fit to announce this week that they have received no offers or had any formal approach for McClaren who only took over at Pride Park a season and a half ago.
McClaren buckled under the pressure during his time as England boss but has since developed into a roundly respected coach after an impressive spell at FC Twente which saw the Dutch side win their first ever league title.
The Yorkshire born manager would surely be a gamble by the Everton hierarchy but if results continue to go their way for Martinez he could be just the men to get the Toffees out of a sticky situation.
