Stones reckons Martinez didn’t treat or coach him in the proper way at Goodison Park last season, leaving him feeling at rock bottom.
Martinez was sacked following the Toffees woeful campaign that saw him change his team’s formation, pick Stones out of position and then drop him when he struggled to impress.
The England star claims Martinez never explained why he wasn’t picking him and he said: “It was a tough period because I was doing everything right.
“I was being professional, I was carrying myself well. I wanted to do everything right, try to get in the team, how everyone should and fight my place.
