Martinez: Deulofeu can be the best

Everton manager Roberto Martinez believes on-loan Barcelona winger Gerard Deulofeu can be one of the best players in the world.

Deulofeu moved on a season-long deal to Goodison Park last summer and has impressed Martinez to the extent that the manager expects the player to become one of the world’s greatest.

“I am convinced he can be one of the great players in the world,” Sport reports Martinez told Onda Cero.

The subject of Martinez one day becoming Barcelona Coach was also raised but the former Wigan Athletic boss dismissed the notion.

“I’ve never had two seconds to think about what next step I would like to take,” he added.
