There was intense speculation in the summer that the Spaniard was set to move to this weekend’s opposition, before he decided to commit to the Wigan project.
The 41 year old insists that it is natural for a manager to consider their prospects at a football club, from time to time, but now he believes a bright future lies ahead for him with the Latics.
“Everyone has to consider their future and assess the direction of the football club. I am very honoured to be the manager of this football club. With the new facilities and training ground we are in a very good place.” Martinez told talkSPORT.
“I believe in building football clubs. You can only leave a football club when it is right for the football club for you to leave it
“I can never break that loyalty with my chairman, when I leave he will make that decision for me”
The former Swansea boss was also questioned upon what the key to his side’s late rally was at the end of last season and the Spaniard was keen to hail the successful change in formation.
He added “You need to get the right balance with enough bodies forward and enough to defence whether it is 4-3-3 or 4-3-2-1”.
