Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez heaped praise on Liverpool teen Raheem Sterling after defeat on Saturday.

It was against Wigan last season Sterling made his debut, a late substitute in a defeat that assisted Kenny Dalglish’s demise and earned Martínez a Liverpool job interview.

“I can see huge, huge progress,” said Martínez. “When we saw him that day a year ago, you could see the real potential. You can see he’s a very direct, talented player and he’s going to have a very bright future.”
