Martinez injury extent revealed

Everton manager Roberto Martinez remains in a coma following a serious car accident while on holiday with family in Mallorca - but now the extent of his injuries confirm that he is unlikely to play any part in managing Everton this season.

His problems don't just start at respiratory failure, but he has 3 broken ribs, a broken fibia, a broken wrist, a hairline fracture to the pelvic bone, and severe burns to his upper back and lower left leg.

Toffees chairman Bill Kenwright, who only a week prior to the accident put pen to paper on a three-year contract extension with Martinez, has been in Mallorca since the day of the accident:

"The doctors have told us, simply put, that Roberto will not be able to play a part in managing Everton Football Club this year.

"We are all still praying Roberto pulls through as he is not only my employee, but a good friend.

"My heart aches at the situation, and talking football at a time like this seems so trivial.

"However, the world does not stop spinning, and I do have a football club to run.

"Due to the extent of Roberto's predicted time out of the game, Everton will seek to appoint an interim management team for the beginning of our 2014/15 Barclays Premier League season in a weeks time."
Ouch, I wonder what's going to happen..

U21 manager Alan Stubbs takes caretaker charge

Everton can confirm reports that our Under-21s manager Alan Stubbs has taken caretaker charge of all first-team matters in the absence of Roberto Martinez, who is still battling for his life in a coma following a motoring accident.

Stubbs will be in charge until such time Roberto can return to managing the football club to the best of his abilities.

Alan will be assisted by Duncan Ferguson (Assistant) and Leon Osman (player-coach).
Darn this is a awesome update and can Stubbs do what Martinez did and then would he even get his job back?
can story just caught up and love it can't wait for more updates you have given me an idea for a story of my own
Jason: The question running through all Evertonians minds! When, or will, Roberto Martinez manage again?
AdamFinchale: Thanks mate, means a lot. Glad I've inspired some form of story for yourself mate :)
Hopefully Stubbs will do a decent job.

Martinez family hold talks with Everton board

The close family of Everton manager Roberto Martinez have held a meeting with Toffees representatives lasting over four hours to discuss the future of the comatose Spaniard, following a car accident that may end the management career of the successful 40 year old.

Wife, Beth Thompson, whom Martinez married in 2009, had been in a meeting at Son Llatzer Hospital in Mallorca where it is believed herself and club chairman Bill Kenwright talked over the future of the former Swansea and Wigan manager, with it widely reported that Martinez's family will offer a mutual termination of the comatose boss' contract - to aid his recovery in the long-term.

Everton Under-21s manager Alan Stubbs has been placed in temporary charge, overseeing pre-season and likely the beginning of the 2014/15 season, but Thompson is believed to want the best for not only her husband, but Everton Football Club.

The reports that Martinez will unwillingly leave Goodison Park as manager are as yet unconfirmed, but a decision will be made within the next 24 hours and BBC Sport will bring you the news of Thompson and Everton's decision as soon as we can.

Martinez remains in a coma but apparently has shown signs of coming round in recent hours.
We love you Stubbsy! I'm still glad that he beat cancer.

Family mutually terminate Martinez's Everton contract

Roberto Martinez's close family have decided to mutually terminate the contract of the seriously injured Everton manager, with chairman Bill Kenwright reluctantly accepting the decision.

It is believed that Martinez is showing 'great signs of progress', but will be out of football for at least a year following his coming out of a coma - should there be no long-lasting brain injuries, which there aren't thought to be.

It is a sad day for the club, as the former Swansea and Wigan tactician led Everton to their highest ever league finish and an FA Cup trophy in his first 12 months in charge at Goodison Park.

A statement read on Everton's official twitter account around an hour ago:

@Everton: "Roberto Martinez has had his contract mutually terminated at the request of his family. We wish Roberto well in his recovery and will support him and those close to him through this difficult time. We are very sad to see Roberto leave the club. #Pray4Martinez"

Another statement quickly followed:

@Everton: Alan Stubbs will remain in caretaker charge until a suitable replacement for Roberto is found. This is a sad day for all at Everton, but it was a decision that his family made for the good of their beloved son, husband and father. #Pray4Martinez"

Sky Sports are also running the same supportive hashtag on their twitter account, RT to show your support for the great Spaniard.

Aw man, I hope he recovers. As for the vacant manager position, who knows who will come in?
Who will Martinez manage next.
