These are the best of the Roberto Martínez Belgium jokes after the former Everton manager was unexpectedly announced as the next head coach of the international side on Wednesday night.
After being sacked by the Merseyside club following a mid-table finish in the Premier League amid fan protests last season, the Spaniard succeeds Marc Wilmots who himself was fired last month following a disappointing Euro 2016 campaign.
With some a little surprised, here are all the best Martínez Belgium jokes as he takes over as manager of an international squad that could include a few of his previous charges.

Martinez completely suits Belgium… All talk, all talent, lots of fawning… Actual results dismal.
