“He's excited about the pre-season tours to Austria and America - I've told him to bring us home a trophy. He's in love. He's in love with Everton.”
Kenwright believes the Everton faithful are already reciprocating Martinez's passion for the club, and have taken to the new manager very quickly.
“I’ve brought [Martinez] in and I want him to work with that audience which is Evertonians.
“And that in itself is a thrill, that in itself is an adventure and that in itself is exciting – and also worrying because it’s not an easy job taking over from David Moyes.
“But it seems to me that there is a real feeling for Roberto already.”
