Everton manager Roberto Martinez reportedly has his World Cup tournament pass removed by FIFA.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez has had his World Cup tournament accreditation taken away, according to a report.

The Daily Mail says Martinez, who is working as a pundit for American channel ESPN, had his pass confiscated after he reportedly allowed his accreditation to be used by someone else who wanted to watch Holland train last week.

The pass is strictly non-transferable and means that the Toffees boss can only be used as a studio analyst on ESPN's Copacabana set as he cannot gain entry into stadiums or training grounds

Martinez's Everton side will begin their Premier League campaign against newly-promoted Leicester City.
