In a shocking move, former Everton manager Roberto Martinez was appointed as the manager of the Belgium national team.
The Spanish manager, who was sacked by Everton last season, was recently linked with the Hull City, but his appointment at the helm of Belgium national team has shocked everyone. Martinez will succeed Marc Wilmots, who was sacked following this summer’s Euro 2016.
Twitter was definitely shocked to hear the news:
