Wigan manager Roberto Martinez was clearly outraged by the performance of Danny Welbeck in Manchester United’s 4-0 demolition of the Latics at Old Trafford.
Welbeck won a penalty early on in the clash after he theatrically fell over a challenge from Ali Al Habsi and the England striker went on to viciously challenge opponent Franco Di Santo late on in the game.
Martinez is seen as a quiet and respected manager in the Premier League but Welbeck’s performance clearly pushed some buttons and sparked a livid reaction in his post-match interview with The Sun.
“He dived, he dived for the penalty.
“And the challenge by him on Franco was completely reckless. Under the new regulations, you can’t do that.
“I’m not blaming the referee for the scoreline but I’m looking for a little bit of fair ground on which to perform.
“I have had three red cards in my last two games here. We don’t seem to be measured in the same manner as the team at home. Today’s penalty was as bad a decision as you are going to see.”
