Roy Keane has made some interesting comments regarding the Everton team and seems to be hinting that the club shouldn't be pushing their players so hard when they have big international games coming up. I know there has long been the club vs country argument, but I can't remember hearing an international (assistant) manager come out and say/hint this. I can't see Martinez being too sympathetic.
He said in the Daily Mail: “I worry that he (McCarthy) is under lots of pressure, particularly from Everton’s point of view.“Because every time there is an international match it does seem to be Seamus (Coleman) and James (McCarthy) under lots of pressure. They’re turning up or they mightn’t turn up, or they’re struggling.“You always get the impression from Everton that Seamus and James are both barely able to walk, that type of thing. So when they actually turn up and they are walking through the reception, ‘Praise the Lord, it’s a miracle’.”
