Espanyol Eye Up Roberto Martinez

Espanyol Eye Up Roberto Martinez


Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez' name is apparently being discussed in the boardroom of one of Spain`s top clubs as Barcelona based Espanyol are considering the future of current manager Mauricio Pochettino and see the Latics chief has a potential replacement.

Espanyol are having a disappointing season and currently lie 14th in La Liga and fans and board aren`t happy with Pochettino and the next three games could determine his fate, they face Real Madrid away on Saturday then Deportivo La Coruna at home before travelling away for a crunch game with Malaga, three defeats and it will be adios Senor Pochettino.

Latics boss Martinez dismisses the reports linking him with a return to Spain as just rumours and he says that he has his own task to complete at Wigan and that is what he is giving his complete focus to and the next 12 weeks that will determine whether his first stint has a Premier League boss has been a successful one or not.

Speaking about the Espanyol rumours Martinez said: 'We need to take any rumours as a compliment to Wigan, but we will not let them distract us from what we are trying to do.

'The next 12 weeks are the most important 12 weeks for Wigan, as regards to building a platform to allow us to move to the next level.

'My focus is totally on the next 12 weeks.'
