Roberto Martinez Speaks About His Decision To Stay

Roberto Martinez Speaks About His Decision To Stay






Wigan Athletic manager Roberto Martinez has spoken about his decision to stay at the Latics rather than talk to Aston Villa about becoming their new boss, agreeing to sign a new three year deal at the DW Stadium this afternoon Martinez said he will only move on when the club is ready for a new manager.

Martinez also said that the job he started at the Latics isn`t finished yet and that there is still much work to be done, he also said that he wants to repay chairman Dave Whelan`s loyalty and support

After agreeing the deal Martinez said: "Over the last two years the Chairman has been very supportive to me and loyal, and now I feel I need to be loyal and supportive back to him.

"I haven`t finished my job at Wigan Athletic; there is much work still to be done, I don`t know how long that will take but such is the belief that I have always had that I would only ever decide to move once the club is ready for a new Manager."


Chief Executive Jonathan Jackson has added:

"We are delighted that Roberto will be continuing the hard work he and his staff started back in 2009, and as a club we are all looking forward with excitement to our seventh season in the Barclays Premier League.

"We at Wigan Athletic; the staff, players and fans, all have a role to play in continuing the progression and growth of our club, and having Roberto at the heart of that process is hugely important."

have to say, Im really pleased that he has decided to stick with you. just goes to show there is loyalty still in the game and that some people put that over money in the bank. Well done Roberto.
