Wigan boss Roberto Martinez has no regrets over committing himself to the Latics over the summer, despite reported interest from Liverpool. The Spaniard said: "In the summer it was the end of the three-year period we agreed with the chairman (Dave Whelan), and that was the time I had to reflect and allow the chairman to reflect.

"Once we sat down and I heard what he wanted to do, and he's a very persuasive man, it was clear that we were going to get ready for the next chapter.

"Moving to the stadium in 1999 was a turning point in the club's history and now we are working very hard to move into a new training facility, we are investing a lot in our younger group and trying to develop our own players, and we have very strong financial structures and are in a very healthy position."
