COACHES: Former EPL side Wigan Athletic Manager ROBERTO MARTINEZ "has been named Everton manager after leaving Wigan Athletic where the Spaniard forged a reputation for making the best of limited resources and playing attractive football." Everton said on its website Wednesday that "Martinez has signed a four-year contract at Goodison Park" (REUTERS, 6/5). Martinez "was the leading candidate to take charge at Goodison Park" since it was announced on May 9 that DAVID MOYES would be leaving to replace ALEX FERGUSON at ManU. Martinez met Everton Chair BILL KENWRIGHT twice for talks last week, before a £1.5M ($2.3M) compensation deal "was agreed on Monday to buy out the remaining 12 months of his Wigan contract" (ESPN, 6/5). ... La Liga side Espanyol coach JAVIER AGUIRRE signed a new one-year contract to stay with the club on Tuesday (MUNDO DEPORTIVO, 6/5)
