Martinez defends Everton loan policy

Everton manager Roberto Martinez has defended his policy of bringing in players on loan at the club, according to Sky Sports.

The Merseyside club currently have three of their first team players in on loan and owe much of their success this season to the efforts of the temporary players.


Despite the loan moves of Lukaku, Gareth Barry and Gerard Deulofeu, there has been much criticism of the loan system by the opposition managers and the media, but Martinez backed his methods.


"I accept everyone's opinion but the loan system has to be part of the game," he said. "Clearly from our point of view the loan system was vital as we needed it to finish our squad and to criticise that would be ridiculous.


"If you can be creative with the way you can use your resources, that is part of the game.


"The two young players (Lukaku and Deulofeu) needed the opportunity to develop and Gareth Barry has come in and his experience has been very important.


"Loanees will never be successful unless you have a strong core of players and that is what we have.”


The Spaniard argued that he is in favour of giving younger players a chance to succeed, such as Lukaku and Deulofeu, as well as bringing in youngsters from Everton’s ranks to aid their development.


The Toffees boss made the point that these players need time to develop, a chance that he is giving to them that they are unlikely to receive at their parent clubs.


"You could find many examples of players who have not been treated fairly just because they are not part of the club's long-term future and are seen just as part of a support squad," he added.


"Some clubs have very much in mind the idea of developing young players and giving them opportunities and we want to believe we are one of those.


"Other teams are very much about first-team affairs and development players are completely separate so it can be very difficult for a young player to have an opportunity in the first team.”
