Belgium boss Roberto Martinez is reportedly not in contention to become the new manager of Leicester City.

Belgium boss Roberto Martinez has reportedly ruled himself out of the running to become the new manager of Leicester City.

The Foxes announced on Sunday that they had parted company with Claude Puel, and the Frenchman's departure has resulted in a wide range of names being linked with the position.

However, according to Sky Sports News, Martinez is not considering leaving his job with Belgium in order to move to the King Power Stadium.

The report claims that Martinez is focused on trying to qualify for Euro 2020, with the World Cup semi-finalists one of the favourites to win the competition.

The Spaniard has previously managed Wigan Athletic and Everton in the Premier League.
