Martinez wants to partner Hernandez against Wigan, West Ham United fans react

Antonio Martinez has become quite the fan favourite at West Ham United this season due to his performances in the development squad.

The 20-year-old was rewarded with a first-team debut earlier this month when the team took on Shrewsbury Town in the FA Cup.

Manager David Moyes is yet to give the forward minutes in the Premier League, but the Spaniard could have a chance of featuring against Wigan Athletic on Saturday.

The Hammers face the League One leaders at the DW Stadium in the hope of continuing their FA Cup campaign.

Ahead of the match, Martinez claimed in an interview with West Ham’s official website that his dream would be to play alongside Javier Hernandez against Wigan.

The Mexico international has been in the headlines of late, with Sky Sports reporting that the former Manchester United star is open to leaving the London Stadium due to a lack of game time.

With Martinez expressing his admiration for Hernandez, West Ham fans have called for the pair to team up.
