40-year-old Spaniard rewarded for leading Everton to record points haul last season

Roberto Martinez's new deal at Everton runs until June 2019

Roberto Martinez has expressed his delight after signing a new five-year contract as manager at Everton.

The Spaniard joined from Wigan Athletic last summer and brought Everton their highest points tally ever in the Barclays Premier League as they finished fifth, ensuring a place in the UEFA Europa League, the club's first foray into European competition in five seasons.

"I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to make a further commitment to Everton," said Martinez, 40, whose new deal goes through to the end of the 2018/19 season. "I loved my first season at the club. I could not be more proud of the way Everton performed throughout the entire season and the memories we were able to make together.

"I am really excited about next season. I knew from the moment I arrived at Everton that this was a special place and I’d like to thank everyone associated with the club, the board, all the staff, the players and our brilliant supporters for believing in me and giving me the opportunity to build on the traditions and success of this great club."

Everton chairman Bill Kenwright said he was excited by the club's future, calling Martinez the "best young manager in Europe".

"He took on an unfamiliar challenge for most managers; to take something really good and make it even better," Kenwright told the Everton website. "He has succeeded. In his debut season he broke our Premier League record points haul, got us back into Europe and developed some of the most exciting young footballers in the game.

"He conducts himself off the pitch in the same way. He undertakes his business with great style, confidence, positivity and class. He is an Everton man. There is no magical ingredient to what we do at Everton. We’re a football club and we recognise the fundamental importance of our manager. And, when we find our man, we empower him.

"We support and provide him with everything at our disposal. We commit to our managers, and we’re immensely pleased that Roberto has committed to us. We want the best because only the best will do."
