New Everton manager Roberto Martinez is set to bring in his own backroom staff over the next few days.
Martinez, who guided Wigan to the FA Cup last season before suffering relegation, is yet to assemble his support team.
However, Everton CEO Robert Elstone has confirmed that there are likely to be new members of staff in place within Martinez’ backroom team soon.
Everton return for pre-season training next week and Elstone considers it important for the new manager to have his own staff appointed sooner rather than later.
“For Roberto to bring in his team is absolutely what he wants to do, and we want to support him on it,” Elstone told the club’s official website.
“We are working hard to do that and I’m hoping in the near future that Roberto will have his team.
“He is also integrating into a very strong, solid team that already exists here. There is a real spirit at Finch Farm and lot of experience. I know he will want to retain that Everton spirit but yes, he does want his own support team around him.
“We are working to make that happen and I’m sure we will succeed on that in the very near future.”
Martinez will manage his first competitive Everton fixture on August 17, when they travel to Norwich on the opening day of the Premier League season.
