Latics Win LMA Performance Award

Latics Win LMA Performance Award


Wigan Athletic have been awarded the LMA F&C Performance of the Week for last weekends 3-1 victory over Chelsea at the DW Stadium.

The five man panel which comprises of LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Joe Royle, Dave Bassett and Barry Fry, were in agreement that the award should go to Latics for the stunning performance in the defeat of Chelsea.

Latics boss Roberto Martinez was obviously delighted to receive the award and he is hoping that there will be more to come over the course of this season, Roberto said: "It`s a great momentum to represent what was a special performance"

"Obviously it was needed to beat such an exciting team like Chelsea. It`s great to pick up these awards for everyone connected with Wigan Athletic and hopefully we`ll have some more over the season.

"It`s clear that that is what we`re capable of doing so we need to maintain those levels and carry on with those kinds of performances week-in week-out.

"In the Premier League if you want to be successful you have to maintain those levels, but it was a special moment; the first time we had beaten one of the top-four after 34 attempts, so it will be nice to keep that award for everyone, and have a nice memory.

"Although we had a fantastic performance and result against Chelsea, that is at the back of our minds now.

"I`m happy to accept the award and keep it away from the players for the time being, until after the Hull City game.

"We`re now focused on what is a great opportunity to carry on showing those standards, and we need to do that against a side looking for a reaction to the form they are in. We have to be prepared for what is going to be a very demanding game."


Nice one
