What The Bosses Said - Latics 1-0 Liverpool

Following last nights game at the DW Stadium between Wigan Athletic and Liverpool both bosses spoke to the press, a chirpy Roberto Martinez and a disconsolate Rafa Benitez had differing views as to the reason behind the result, lets see what the said:

Latics boss Roberto Martinez:

'We were worthy winners and that speaks volumes about the character of the players

'We have had a few painful lessons and thrown away 19 points and had we even kept half of them we would be in a completely different situation.


'We are a young squad but the way we beat Liverpool and Chelsea a few months ago shows the potential they have'

'We must make sure that we finish the season as strongly as we can do.

'It was pleasing to be able to perform the way we did but the application, concentration and desire to keep Liverpool as quiet as we did is a huge compliment to the players.

'We have got five huge games left at home - it is important the players understand the magnitude of this performance. This standard is something we need to show week in, week out.'

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez:

'I'm really disappointed, in the first half we didn't do anything and didn't show the attitude required. It's difficult to explain.

'At half-time we talked about the things we weren't doing well - the attitude and the character. We made too many mistakes and played too quickly.'

'We didn't deserve anything in the first half'

'In the second half we worked harder but Wigan defended really well.'
