Managing without fear: An interview with Roberto Martinez

by Between The Lines with Melissa Reddy

The man in charge of Belgium’s golden generation is the final guest of 2020 on Between The Lines in one of the most engaging, enlightening and wide-ranging interviews around.

The Spaniard shares his expansive experience in football with us: from navigating English football’s lower leagues as a foreign player while studying for two degrees, establishing a legacy at Swansea, surviving and succumbing to relegation with Wigan, the best and loneliest of times at Everton to taking on one of the most exciting jobs in the game.

Roberto talks about the importance of players getting an education, reveals why homeschooling his young daughters is harder than finishing third at the 2018 World Cup, stresses the need to protect the English pyramid and calls for greater emphasis on welfare in football.
