After Martinez's claims this week that you wouldn't want to cross his new assistant Graeme Jones, the former Wigan striker said there's more to him than that.
'I would like to think I've got a bit more in my locker than that.
'I had an 'A' licence when I was 29, and over the last four years I've been cutting my teeth and learning about the game at the Middlesbrough Academy.
'For the last six months I've been assistant manager of Hamilton in the Scottish First Division, which is a decent level, so I'm educated about the game.
It was also encouraging to hear him say that attitude is one of many things he looks out - something the squad have been lacking in in recent months.
He added: 'Having said that, the first thing I look for is attitude. A bad attitude is the one thing I can't stand.'
He seemed happy with the attitude against Orient last Saturday despite the side missing a host of chances to win the game.
'I would like to praise the players for their attitude on Saturday.
'It was top-drawer, they played the game in the right manner.
'But I can assure you now that if the day comes where the attitude is questionable, I will be all over them.'
Graeme Jones didn't hestitate in his decision to move down to South Wales and says that his former team-mate has given him an excellent opportunitity.
'I'm ambitious and I wanted to come to Swansea from the word go,' he says.
'I was on a three-year rolling contract at Hamilton which wasn't easy to get out of, and I had to show a degree of respect and loyalty to the people I was working for.
'It needed to be done correctly and Swansea conducted themselves really well. Everything was eventually sorted out last Friday, and I drove 420 miles from Glasgow to be at the Leyton Orient game.
'It was too good an opportunity to turn down.'
'I always knew Roberto would get into management,'
'We both believe in playing football - fast, attacking, attractive football where you pass from the back into midfield and then into your strikers.'
