Roberto Martinez set to decide future

Wigan manager Roberto MartinezRoberto Martinez says a decision will be made on his Wigan future on Monday when he holds talks with chairman Dave Whelan.

The Spaniard is still high on Everton’s wanted list as they look to replace David Moyes, while reports in Italy are also suggesting the Latics boss is a target for Napoli.

Whelan is keen to for him to stay but has always said he will not stand in Martinez’s way if a top job comes along and the duo will discuss the situation again next week.

“Over the next week we’ll sit down with the chairman and we’ll decide,” he told Sky Sports News. “But it’s just a time to be proud of the achievement of the last eight years at this level, making sure we can bounce back.

“But the football club financially and in terms of history, we’re ready to break even more ground, playing in the Europa League in the group stages, and carry on making that belief and pride of Wigan very strong.”

Martinez is likely to ask for permission to speak to Everton, but just like he did with Aston Villa and Liverpool, he could turn them down and stay in charge at the DW Stadium.
