Everton must increase squad size, says Martinez

Everton manager Roberto Martinez has said that the club must look to significantly boost the size of its squad, should they qualify for Europe for next season, the Liverpool Echo has reported.

As it stands, with Sunderland having failed to win the Capital One Cup, a top six finish will guarantee a European spot for next season. Everton currently lie sixth, but have one of the Premier League’s smallest squads, and Martinez has often used the loan system in order to boost its size over the course of this season.


Newcastle United and Swansea City’s league form has been affected by participation in the Europa League, and Martinez is keen to increase the numbers at Goodison Park to prevent something similar happening at Everton.


He said: “Europe is obviously an aim we need to fight for. To be able to compete in Europe would stretch us massively in terms of the squad. 100% we’d need to increase the size of our squad.


‘Europe has different demands and that has to be reflected in the numbers you have in the squad and the type of player you bring in too. Sometimes you need to bring in experienced players at an international level."
