Martinez Says Latics Are a Good Prospect

Martinez Says Latics Are a Good Prospect


Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez says that the sale of Antonio Valencia to Manchester United for a reputed £16 million is in the best interests of the club in the long term.

Speaking to the Wigan Evening Post Martinez says that when a club like Manchester United come calling it is very hard to say no and that the money received for the sale will be of great benefit as he rebuilds the squad.

Martinez said: 'He has been a marvellous player for us and now we will benefit enormously from the money that we get for him.

'As long as any deal is in the best long term interests of the club, and I believe this one is, then I will sanction it, and I know the chairman agrees.

'The bottom line here is that when two of the biggest clubs in the world come knocking, it would be near on impossible for any other club to prevent the move - even Manchester United couldn't stop Ronaldo leaving in the end, could they?"


The Latics new boss is quickly coming to terms with the prospect of how to sell the club to potential new signings and Martinez identified Valencia, Palacios and Heskey has three players that have had their careers turned around by being at the Latics and he says this is a strong message to others that Wigan Athletic are a good platform, he continued:

'Every club outside the Top Four is probably a selling club, and when you look at the careers of players like Antonio, or Wilson Palacios, or even Emile Heskey who regained his England shirt while he was here and earned himself a great move, it sends out a really strong message that Wigan Athletic is a very good prospect for players wanting to make a name for themselves in the Premier League, a club that gives players a chance and gives them a platform on which to shine.

'That is what really interests me.'


Good stuff, lets get some of the cash spent and start making some signings
