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

What The Bosses Said - Bournemouth 0-1 Latics



The Latics made it through to round 4 of the FA Cup, despite coming under the cosh at Bournemouth. Mauro Boselli claimed his fourth goal of the season to nudge us past the spirited League 1 side

Following the game both managers spoke to the press, let's take a look at what they had to say:

Latics boss Roberto Martinez - 'It was a very difficult game as we expected'

'We know that Bournemouth have been unbeaten and it doesn't matter at what level you do that at because you have got a very strong unit.

'I must admit Bournemouth deserve huge, huge credit over the two games in the manner they play football and I think it is going to bring real success to this football club.

'We knew that we had nothing to win today and had to be very professional; really, really strong and I couldn't be more proud of my players. When you make nine changes it is not easy.'


Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe - 'I thought it was a really good game and Wigan showed us a lot of respect with the team they picked'

'It was a strong team and we were slightly disappointed with our first-half performance.

'I think in the second half that all changed and we had a right go at Wigan and threw everything at them and, apart from their goalkeeper making some good saves and the woodwork, I think we would have deservedly forced extra-time.

'I think it was a really good effort from the players, we did not necessarily lose it and I think Wigan won it - if a team was going to beat us they were going to have to earn it.'
