Ross Barkley is one of the best players who can help England

Ross Barkley is one of the best players who can help England at international level according to Everton manager Roberto Martinez.

The Everton boss has given out his suggestions for manager Roy Hodgson to get the best out of Barkley. Regarded as one of the finest young talents at international level right now,Barkley is expected to start a war between the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City. Everton are not keen to sell the player now.Barkley consistently flourished since the arrival of Martinez, who says that he sees the midfielder as an attacking threat rather than a defensive player.

Martinez says that the pace offered by the 21-year-old will be key towards opening of the opposition. International matches are especially cagey and a player likeBarkley will excel in such situations according to Martinez. The statements by the Everton manager cannot be questioned at this moment sinceBarkley has performed exceptionally well in the first few months of the season. After having made 12 appearances in all competitions,Barkley has returned with six goals and three assists. These are extremely good numbers for a player who is representing a team near the bottom half of the table.

“It’s quite simple. People will look at what Ross does ­defensively, but I look at what he can do ­offensively against these sorts of teams.These international teams when they lose the ball, there is space, but you need pace and power to break into that space. Ross gives you that.Those four seconds as soon as you win the ball, who can affect the game then in transition? He is the best in the business. But if England don’t want to play like that, if they just want to wait and get set and have the ball, Ross is not special,” said Barkley.
