Roberto Martinez ‘won’t waste time’ on Real Madrid talk

Belgium Coach Roberto Martinez has commented that he will not ‘waste time’ discussing links to the Real Madrid job.

The former Wigan and Everton boss has been linked to Los Blancos following the dismissal of Julen Lopetegui and the apparent ruling out of a move for Antonio Conte.

“Let us not waste our time about that,” Martinez told VTM Nieuws, as cited by Diario AS.

The Spaniard is under contract with the Belgium FA until 2020, with Belgium – whom he guided to this summer’s World Cup semi-finals – insisting a compensation agreement must be struck with them before talks open elsewhere.
