What The Bosses Said - Latics Vs Chelsea

What The Bosses Said - Latics Vs Chelsea

Following yesterday`s game between Wigan Athletic and Chelsea at the DW Stadium both managers, Roberto Martinez and Carlo Ancelotti spoke to the press, lets see what they had to say:

Latics boss Roberto Martinez:

'When you are Wigan and playing against the top four you have options, you can be brave and beat them or you can get hammered.

'That is what happened. We were beaten 4-0 and 5-0 (by Arsenal and Man Utd) and here the only reason we won is because we learned our lessons.

'We have been brave from the first moment and no-one can say we did not deserve the win. That is a big compliment to our club.

'This is for the fans, who have been with us through the bad times and supported us all well. The great thing from my point of view was our reaction to conceding a goal. We continued to be positive.'

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti:

'It was a bad display. I don't know why we didn't play well but these things can happen after many wins.

'Wigan played better than us. They were well organised and played well. This was the right result.

'We played well in the first 10 minutes but when we lost the first goal it became more complicated.'

Well said both managers
