Roberto Martinez, Everton manager is certain the arrival of Pep Guardiola will raise the standard in the EPL.
Guardiola will be joining the EPL once his contract with Bayern Munich ends, with Ancelotti already named his replacement.
And Martinez is certain Guardiola will raise the standards of any league he joins.
“To see a manager of this standard is a phenomenal sign,” he said on Friday. “It’s going to be a terrific addition to the league.
“As a manager he’s unique, he’s a modern manager who chooses total football something like Cruyff, he has chosen a clear way of playing, and like Johann Cruyff he sticks to his principles.
“It’s good news, to be more competitive and the best league in football. It will be great for football in general.”
