Martinez coy on Wigan future

21 May 2013 02:28

Wigan manager Roberto Martinez has refused to commit to another season with the relegated club at their FA Cup celebration parade.

Martinez has been linked with the vacant manager's job at Everton, following David Moyes' departure to Manchester United.

Speaking to Wigan fans on Monday, Martinez refused to commit to another campaign with the Lancashire-based club, who will play in the Championship next season following their relegation from the Premier League.

As fans chanted 'we want you to stay, we want you to stay', Martinez paid tribute to Wigan's players and coaching staff.

"Let me tell you two things," Martinez said.

"One, that we are the FA Cup winners.

"Two, we have a special group of players and backroom staff that makes Wigan Athletic proud and without your support that would have never happened so we want to thank you from the heart."

Midfielder Ben Watson, the hero of Wigan's 1-0 upset victory over Manchester City in the FA Cup final at Wembley, hailed the achievement of his team-mates and paid tribute to the team's supporters.

"It was a great achievement from the lads," he said.

"To score in the FA Cup was unbelievable. The fans have been great and it was a pleasure for them."
