Martinez praise for McGeady

Martinez praise for McGeady

Aiden McGeady might not have shown his full worth yet following his move to Everton from Spartak Moscow, but he already has Everton gaffer Roberto Martinez excited.

Martinez has been a long term admirer of the 27-year-old Republic of Ireland international and was linked with a move for him on numerous occasions whilst Wigan manager.

But he was never able to tempt him away from Russia, until he made the move to Everton.

What helped of course was that McGeady was set to be out-of-contract with Spartak Moscow after he failed to agree new terms to extend his stay in Russia.

That led to McGeady being frozen out by Spartak and not playing any football between November and his eventual move in January.

That of course has meant a slow impact on the Premier League as the winger rebuilds his match fitness and gets used to the Premier League.

But Martinez completely backs his signing to impress towards the final run in of the season.

"This league is crying out for intelligent wingers like him. He is an out and out winger who can control his space, take people on and find space. He`s exciting in one versus one situations with a very unpredictable quality.

"That`s the type of player you need in this league to exploit spaces in the wide areas and in transition periods."
Martinez told The Echo.

He continued: "I actually think we`ve been fortunate to have him before the end of the season, It took a little while to get his fitness levels and physicality ready but now he`s ready and I think we`ll see the best of him over the next eight weeks.

"It`s a real bonus, getting him in January allowed us to get him adapted to the club and to a new league he has never played in before.
