Roberto Martinez eyes quick return

Roberto MartinezRoberto Martinez says Wigan have to look to the future after relegation and believes they are in a good position to bounce back.

Latics may have won the FA Cup on Saturday but they came crashing back down to earth at the Emirates Stadium last night as a 4-1 defeat against Arsenal sent them to the Championship.

The future of Roberto Martinez is now in serious doubt with some bookmakers installing him as the hot favourite to take charge at Everton, but the Spaniard for now is only thinking about Wigan.

Martinez could not hide his disappointment after the game but is confident that Wigan have everything in place to make a sharp return to the Premier League.

“It’s a difficult time but it’s time to look back, get stronger and prepare for the future,” Martinez revealed. “We’ve had an incredible eight years in the Premier League and we have to take the good things from last few years, and there are many.

“We’ll bounce back as we always do at Wigan. We’re on a fantastic financial footing, we have huge assets and a philosophy for the long term.”
