Roberto Martinez backs Mauro Boselli to shine


Wigan Athletic's Argentinian striker Mauro Boselli still has the backing of manager Roberto Martinez, despite a sticky start to his career in England.

The 25-year-old South American has yet to find the net for the Latics in five outings, having missed a clear chance in the 1-1 weekend draw with Sunderland.

Martinez said after that game:"He's a finisher, he's a goalscorer and I've never seen him miss in that situation.

"The Argentinian league has completely different demands physically and he is getting used to playing here.

"He's reaching that level for 55 or 60 minutes and when he gets fully fit, he will never miss those sorts of chances, because that's his strength."
