大衛-馬丁代爾說利文斯頓可以進入英超前四名

最後更新於.來自利文斯頓部分

利文斯頓經理David Martindale說他擁有俱樂部有史以來最強的陣容,並相信他的球隊可以完成前四名。

西洛錫安隊在休息時排名第四,距離第三名只有兩分。

"我們孤立地處理每一場比賽,"馬丁德爾說。

"但我認為這支隊伍可以獲得前四名嗎?是的,我認為。前六名?是的,我認為。集體目標是獲得第十名嗎?是的,它是。

"聯賽的變化可能非常快。凱爾特人是要擊敗的球隊,安吉[波斯特科格魯]已經建立了一個強大的團隊。

"格拉斯哥流浪者正處於一個過渡期,而現在的赫茲,由於離開了歐洲,當他們所有的球員都回來時,他們會回來的更強大。

"這是一個非常緊密的團隊,我認為任何事情都可能發生。我不認為在這個時間點上有誰被鎖定為第二名。

我不認為你可以說:"這支球隊將在英超聯賽中獲得第12名"。我試着只看星期六的三分。鄧迪聯隊是下一個重點,凱爾特人,然後是希布。

"但這可能是我在英超時擁有的最強大的球員群體。"

在利文斯頓五個賽季的頂級聯賽中,絕大多數時間都是由馬丁德爾擔任主教練,他說鑑於最近的結果,他對喬瓦尼-范布隆克霍斯特在流浪者失去工作並不感到驚訝。

有報道稱,前格拉斯哥流浪者隊的一線隊教練邁克爾-比爾與這份工作聯繫在一起,馬丁德爾說任命女王公園流浪者隊的老闆是有意義的。

"他說:"我認為邁克爾-比爾將是一個很好的人選,但這取決於邁克爾和格拉斯哥流浪者,而不是大衛-馬丁代爾。

"蘇格蘭有很多人才,肖恩-戴奇已經被聯繫起來了,這將是一個夢幻般的簽約。我總是希望看到英國比賽的進步。

"雇用一個了解球員和蘇格蘭或英國足球知識的人有很多說法,我認為這是很有好處的。這是一種不同的風格,你給自己一個良好的開端。

"我不是說外國經理不能在蘇格蘭獲得成功,當然不是。但我認為,當你看到那些沒有任何英國足球經驗的外國經理進入蘇格蘭足球時,對他們來說是困難的。

"有英國經驗的經理可能會更快地進入狀態。這只是我的個人觀點。"

Livingston manager David Martindale says he has the strongest squad he's ever had at the club and believes his side could finish in the top four.

The West Lothian side sit fourth at the break, just two points off third place.

"We deal with every game in isolation," Martindale said. • None All the latest on Livingston

"But do I think this group could get top four? Yes I do. Top six? Yes I do. Is the collective objective finishing 10th? Yes, it is.

"The league can change very quickly. Celtic are the team to beat, Ange [Postecoglou] has built a formidable squad.

"Rangers are in a transitional period and now Hearts, being out of Europe, are going to come back even stronger when they get all their players back.

"It's a really tight group of teams, I think anything can happen. I don't think anybody's nailed on for second at this point in time.

"And I don't think you can say, hand on heart: 'this team's going to finish 12th in the Premier League'. I try to just look at three points on a Saturday. Dundee United is the next focus, Celtic, and then Hibs.

"But this is probably the strongest group of players I've had in my time in the Premiership."

Martindale, who has been manager for the vast majority of Livingston's five-season stay in the top flight, says he was not surprised to see Giovanni van Bronckhorst lose his job at Rangers given recent results.

Reports have linked former Rangers first-team coach Michael Beale with the job, and Martindale says appointing the Queens Park Rangers boss would make sense.

"I think Michael Beale would be a great fit, but that's up to Michael and Rangers, not David Martindale," he said.

"There's a lot of talent in Scotland, Sean Dyche has been linked and that would be a fantastic signing. I would always like to see progression in the British game.

"There's a lot to be said for hiring someone who knows the players and knowledge of Scottish or British football, which I think is hugely beneficial. It's a different style and you give yourself a good head start.

"I'm not saying foreign managers can't be successful in Scotland, of course not. But I think when you look at foreign managers who've come into Scottish football without any British football experience it's been difficult for them.

"Managers with British experience probably hit the ground running a bit quicker. That's just my personal opinion." • None Get notifications, news, analysis and fan views for Livingston by downloading the BBC Sport app on - - and hitting the bell icon on the club page
