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

What The Bosses Said - Spurs 0-1 Latics



A great result for the Latics on Saturday saw the three points make their way back up north with Spurs beaten in their own backyard

Following the game both managers spoke to the media, one was a little happier than the other, let's take a look at what they said:

Latics boss Roberto Martinez:

'From start to finish it was an impressive performance and we showed exactly what we're capable of'

'I'm sure many people will look at the result and assume we nicked something from the game, but the truth is that we were dominant, the first-half in particular.

'We created three open opportunities which Brad Friedel had to be at his best to stop but the reaction in the second-half was a joy to see, doing the things we had to and towards the end of the game showing great concentration in the box as Spurs came forward.

'There was incredible work ethic from the players and fantastic phases of football which speaks volumes of the mentality and ability of this squad to do that away from home in a place like White Hart Lane.'

'Back-to-back wins sends a clear message about the quality of the players at the Club.

'In recent weeks we've had some 'nearly-performances' but not quite complete ones but today we showed from start to finish a level that we need to aim to be at week after week.

'The mentality of the players was fantastic and it was a pleasure to watch them enjoying their football and picking up a great result.

'The squad want to really achieve something this year and show these standards from week to week.'


Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas:

'Today was a day that we learned a lesson from Wigan, they played extremely well and we were the poorer team.

'We didn't have the flow of the game in any circumstance, we didn't control the ball and we didn't create a sequence of passes that we were proud of.

'It's all credit to the organisation of Wigan, they were strong defensively and offensively, they moved the ball well. We never managed to get tight on them and they found the gaps in between us.'
