Manchester city defender John Stones has criticized Red Devils of Belgium coach Roberto Martinez following his departure from the Mersey side earlier this summer.
John Stones was a prominent member of the Everton first team under Coach Roberto Martinez who gave the Englishman an opportunity and stuck with him despite Everton fans.
The England international who is now working high profile Pep Guardiola has turned on his former boss as it appears to be unhappy with his former boss for eventually dropping him in favour of Phil Jagielka and Ramiro Funes Mori.
Stones said: ‘It was a tough period because I was doing everything right, I was being professional,
‘I was carrying myself well. I felt I was doing everything I could and deserved to play and still wasn’t. That’s when I found it hard. It’s probably a question you should have asked him at the time because he wasn’t telling me.
‘The gaffer got sacked. It wasn’t enjoyable. We want to go out every week and try to win football matches, that’s our job, and when we don’t do that a few games on the trot, it starts to eat away at you.
‘It was a good test for me. I learnt a lot about my football, about myself. I feel I came out stronger and never changed who I was and how I played. I’m proud about that.
John stones will hope to be in fine form as they battle fierce rivals in the Manchester derby on September 10 at the Old Trafford Stadium.
