Martinez: Mason Holgate is a phenomenal talent (Drink one beer)
The Roberto Martinez drinking game was in full flow at this mornings press conference as he described incoming transfer target Mason Holgate as a phenomenal talent.
Martinez insisted that Holgate would not be replacing Chelsea target John Stones but he does feel that the club are starting to build a young golden generation.
“We’re hoping to conclude Mason Holgate,” said Martinez. “He’s 18 and has already played 20 games in League One which shows the potential. We will be delighted to conclude it.
“He’s a phenomenal young prospect coming into that golden generation we have at this football club. Him and John Stones are both very clear in what they want to achieve – they’re both leaders – but that’s the only comparison.”
