Martinez won't abandon Wigan playing style

Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez is happy to stick to his playing beliefs.

Martinez now has an FA Cup final to look forward to, though are still in the middle of a relegation battle.

"I have never been tempted to change," he said.

"From starting as a manager at Swansea in 2007, it hasn't been easy.

"Everyone looks at Swansea now and thinks they have played that way for 20 years. It took six months.

"It was very new and people had to be educated. But since I left my country to join the British game I would never change my football beliefs."
