Martinez wary of January sales

first_img The veteran striker’s move to Sampdoria was confirmed on Tuesday and Martinez sees Arouna Kone, who is fit again after a long-term knee injury, as the player to step into the breach. Everton are enduring a difficult season and have failed to win any of their last eight games, but Martinez is in no hurry to bring in reinforcements. He told the club’s official website: “January is not the place to find solutions (in the transfer market). Our moment of form, we want to change, but the solutions are in the squad. “With Arouna Kone being fully fit, I see him as a replacement for Samuel’s position and it is more about trying to get the players back from injury. “Steven Pienaar and Leon Osman have been two players missing throughout the season, which has been disappointing because they are important in the way we want to play. “Leon played in every single game last season and we miss what he brings. So I am looking around that. “We are always working and if we can do something to help the players we have got at the club then we will do something. But what’s clear is that January is not very straightforward. “You never get value for money, first and foremost, and you will not get players you have been following for a long time. And if you want to rely on January to find solutions for your season, then it is a big gamble.” Press Associationcenter_img Everton boss Roberto Martinez is not looking to sign a replacement for Samuel Eto’o during the January transfer window.last_img read more

Premier League: Alexandre Lacazette Defends Unai Emery, Calls Arsenal Fans ‘Fickle’

Follow on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Telegram, TikTok and on YouTube, and stay in the know with what’s happening in the world around you – in real time. London: French striker Alexandre Lacazette has leaped to the defence of under-fire Arsenal manager Unai Emery saying fans were being fickle in criticising him after not praising him when they were on a good run last season.The pressure on the 48-year-old Spaniard grew with a 2-0 defeat by Leicester on Saturday, leaving the Gunners with just one win in their last six Premier League games and eight points off fourth place and a Champions League qualification spot. Emery has also had to deal with the fallout from Granit Xhaka’s emotional outburst towards supporters when he was substituted against Crystal Palace a fortnight ago. The Spaniard eventually stripped the Swiss international of the captaincy.Lacazette, though, said while the players’ confidence had dipped the present international break gives them a chance to recharge their batteries ahead of their game at home to struggling Southampton on November 24.”Last season when we were unbeaten in 20 games in a row nobody said anything about the coach or manager,” said Lacazette.”We miss confidence and we need the international break.”I hope we are going to come back well. We want to be top four, of course.”Now we are nine points behind Chelsea and Leicester and it is going to be hard, but everything is possible in football.” Alexandre LacazettearsenalPremier LeagueUnai Emery First Published: November 11, 2019, 3:15 PM ISTlast_img read more
