Martinez happy goalscorer Ramis chose Wigan over West Ham

Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez was delighted with goal scorer Ivan Ramis in victory over West Ham United.

Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez was delighted with goal scorer Ivan Ramis in victory over West Ham United.

West Ham were also looking to sign the 28-year-old Spaniard in the summer, and this is the second time he has scored against them after netting in the Capital One Cup last month.

Martinez said: "Probably we'll have to play against West Ham more often. It was as clean a contact as you're going to see, it was a striker's strike.

"So I'm pleased with that but I'm even happier with Ivan Ramis's performance, what he did off the ball, the way he was talking with the others. I think he's developing his communication skills quite quickly and he was a real leader."
