Former Everton, Wigan and Swansea manager Roberto Martinez has been appointed the new head coach of Belgium.

Spaniard Martinez, 43, was sacked by the Toffees in May after three years in charge at Goodison Park.

Marc Wilmots left as Belgium manager last month, two weeks after the Euro 2016 quarter-final defeat by Wales.

The vacancy was advertised online by the Belgian Football Association.

It wanted a “strong and open communicator” who has a “proven track record in transmitting tactical and strategic knowledge” to top players.

Martinez’s surprise appointment was announced on the association’s official Twitter feed.
