Roberto Martinez Reveals His Unusual Way Of Celebrating John Stones' Failed Transfer

Roberto Martinez Reveals His Unusual Way Of Celebrating John Stones' Failed Transfer
By Mikey Traynor

Transfer deadline day came and went and England international John Stones is still an Everton player.

It was a transfer saga that raged on for weeks despite Roberto Martinez's insistence that Stones would not be moving, mainly due to Chelsea believing that every player has their price. John Stones doesn't seem to have a price, or at least he certainly didn't in that transfer window, and after winning the battle to keep a key player at his club, the Everton manager is quite happy with himself.

At his pre-match press conference ahead of the return of Premier League football, Martinez revealed that he has been celebrating in a similar fashion to Everton's fans in the stands at Goodison Park:

I thought that when the transfer window was over we would be able to concentrate on the games and that is the only thing I am focusing on. I've been singing “Can’t buy me Stones” to the tune of The Beatles’ Can’t Buy Me Love, in the shower.

Can't Buy Me Stones had been belted out by the Everton fans at the end of August, and clearly it's made an impression on the manager.

It's not often you hear a football manager reveal that he's been celebrating keeping a player at the club, let alone that he does it in the shower, so fair play to Roberto for moving away from pre-match press conference monotony.
