What The Bosses Say - Liverpool Vs Latics


Roberto Martinez and his Wigan Athletic travel to Anfield on Wednesday to face a Liverpool side who`s season appears to be imploding, reds boss Rafa Benitez is under pressure and the spotlight is firmly on Liverpool due to the Bill Shankly anniversary celebrations, a defeat at the hands of the Latics and who knows what the consequence would be.

Both bosses have spoken to the press in the build up to the game, lets see what they`ve had to say:


Latics boss Roberto Martinez:

'We've got plenty of games coming up in a short period of time, and it's very exciting. The performance at Stoke gives us a platform to go into the next game full of confidence knowing what we have to do.

'Liverpool are on the back of a disappointing result, but they have a world-class squad which alone makes them a very dangerous side.

'In a way their game against Arsenal was very similar to ours against Birmingham City recently; in the first-half they were very dominant and you have found it difficult to believe that they would not have got anything out of the game, if not the win.

'They'll start very brightly on Wednesday and we need to be able to cope with that, and make sure we continue with the standards we showed at Stoke.

'If we approach the game in the right way we'll get the rewards, because in football you always get the rewards long-term.

'Anfield is one of the Premier League's most glamorous places and we need to be at our best to get the points we couldn't get at Stoke.

'Rafa is the most successful manager that Spanish football has ever produced, with plenty of achievements and experience.'




Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez:

'The main thing now is that we have to show confidence, we have to show character'

'They play for Liverpool. We have to improve, we have to show character when we have problems and we must keep our confidence high.

'The only way to change things is to keep working hard and in this situation, when you are making mistakes, you have to be strong and try do things properly in the future.'

'We kept giving the ball away against Arsenal, it is something we have to improve on.

'Now we play Wigan on Wednesday here and we know we have to do better.

Should be an interesting game to say the least

Bob, needs to stop being too nice. Too much respect to other teams can slightly undermine ourselves.
