His downfall was in Europe, where his party threw away two benefits with three goals in back-to-back Champions League campaigns for Roma and Liverpool.
Now according to the Catalan radio station RAC1, Valverde is under increasing pressure after the final defeat of Copa del Rey by Valencia.
Despite Barcelona showing openly its support for Valverde after the defeat of the Spanish Cup, they suggest that the club is looking for someone who is harder trained.
They are also looking for someone who has more guts when it comes to replacements and who wants a more offensive playing style.
Martinez led Belgium to a third placed finish in last summer's World Cup and has impressed many sides of the League.
The former boss of Everton and Wigan has only lost three of his 35 games at the helm of the Belgian national side.
