'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Go Tell 'em Bobby - Wigan Athletic

Following the summer of fun when there were the denials and counter denials whether Liverpool had offered their managers post to Latics boss Roberto Martinez, or not, the man himself has spoken and he says, well take a look:

Roberto Martinez speaking with the Daily Mirror - 'I take satisfaction first of all from seeing my team win, but also from seeing the young kids soak up my philosophy, knowing that my club is in a healthy financial state and can progress across all areas every season.'

'This is vital. This is what a football club is: a philosophy. We must educate people. In five or six years, we reap the benefits. Maybe I won't be there then. But this is not why I stayed, when Liverpool made me an offer.'

'I stayed at the club because my chairman is unique. This summer, we sat down together. He had thought about the future of the club, I had done the same.

'He knew that I had spoken with other clubs. But he is so persuasive... I extended my contract for three years. He wants to take the club to the next level. I know it will be difficult, but it excites me a lot.'

Cue Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre for a smart arse reply, his last statement on the matter read: 'To be honest, I always thought John Bishop was the biggest comedian in the north west, but Dave Whelan seems to have taken that mantle'
