Roberto Martinez claims he has not thought of Barcelona’s job.

Belgium boss Roberto Martinez says he has not thought of Barcelona’s Job but rather focused on Nations League.

The Former Everton manager has been linked with the Spanish club after series of poor performance from Ronald Koeman.

In an interview Martinez was asked if taking the job will be an opportunity or a poison with the current situation at the club.

He replied: “I haven’t really thought about it. I have been thinking about the Nations League for a year and a half and that is what worries me now. My opinion would be quite misaligned.”

And when asked if he was flattered to be an option for Barcelona, the former Everton and Wigan boss added: “Look, I’ve been away from home for many years.

“There are not too many fans who know about my career, or that I was seven years in a row in the Premier. This makes me laugh. I think there was a change in the 2018 World Cup.

“We had the affection of Spanish fans, I noticed it right away. For me, it was a great illusion. From there, the coaches are always in the rumors.

“When the team wins you dream for other projects and when the team loses you are on the verge of cessation. You get used to it and you live outside of all this.”

Xavi and Andrea Pirlo are other names in the frame who could succeed Koeman, who presided over yet another defeat at the weekend, this time a 2-0 loss against Atletico Madrid.
