Wigan boss Martinez: McManaman can handle scrutiny

Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez has no doubts selecting Callum McManaman for today's crunch game against QPR.

Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez has no doubts selecting Callum McManaman for today's crunch game against QPR.

McManaman’s knee-high tackle on Newcastle left-back Massadio Haidara led to calls for him to be hit with a retrospective three-match ban.

But he is free to line up at QPR on Sunday and at Wembley next Saturday for the FA Cup semi-final against Millwall.

"Callum has coped with the whole situation really well," said Martinez. "He has been a true professional."
