Martinez: Everton fullback Baines is Wigan's greatest ever

Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez is full of praise for Everton star Leighton Baines.

Baines made 145 league appearances for Wigan before leaving for £6million.

Martinez said: "Leighton has to be the best-ever product of Wigan Athletic, given that he is a regular in the England squad. When I arrived here we set ourselves the challenge of producing a Leighton Baines every two years."
