Martinez hails Kenwright impact

Roberto Martinez believes that chairman Bill Kenwright deserves credit for Everton’s unbeaten start to the season.

Bill Kenwright (L) is not concerned by the club's lack of activity in the transfer market.

Manager Martinez takes his side to Fulham in the Capital One Cup third round on Tuesday evening having yet to experience defeat in a competitive game since taking charge at Goodison Park.

The Spaniard, who replaced Manchester United-bound David Moyes as boss in June, feels he has been helped by the stewardship of his chairman.

Kenwright was heavily involved on a frantic transfer deadline day that saw Everton bring in two midfielders -- Gareth Barry from Manchester City and James McCarthy from Wigan -- and striker Romelu Lukaku from Chelsea, in addition to keeping England left-back Leighton Baines in the face of Manchester United’s interest.

Everton, who spent £13 million on McCarthy and brought Barry and Lukaku in on loan, actually ended the day in profit, having sold midfielder Marouane Fellaini to Manchester United for £27 million and striker Victor Anichebe to West Brom for a fee that could rise to £6 million with add-ons.

Martinez told the Liverpool Daily Post: “It is only three months into it, but I have been so impressed. The chairman has been influential in everything we have done so far and in every deal.

“We help each other but he is an incredible, incredible influence in the day-to-day running at Everton.

“As a chairman, he is a real example of how to look after a football club. I think all the fans should know how fortunate we are as a football club to have Bill Kenwright as a chairman at Everton.”

Martinez, who spent four years as Wigan’s manager before moving to Merseyside, can see parallels between Kenwright and Latics chairman Dave Whelan.

The manager said: “To have an understanding chairman is important and the way to be an understanding chairman is when they are in the position for the right reasons -- just loving the football club and being a true fan.

“I have always been very aware of that. Dave Whelan is Mr. Wigan Athletic really. And Bill Kenwright is just an Evertonian. His life is around Goodison Park and Everton itself and he was brought up in that culture.

“Believe me, the difference is that when there is a big issue, the answer is not about finances or short-term reward, the answer is always for the good and benefit of Everton.

“The chairman is the man who is capable of making those calls so as a manager you need a chairman who has the good of the club at his heart.”
