Wigan boss Martinez wants Di Santo to find Chile form

Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez says he knows new signing Franco di Santo from watching him in Chile.

Martinez suggested the pressure of trying to prove himself to Chelsea had weighed heavy on the 21-year-old but at the DW Stadium he would be able to play with more freedom.

"He has always had that dream of earning the chance to play for Chelsea and now he can focus on playing for Wigan and being himself," he said.

"I have seen him play many games for Audax in Chile and all I want is for him to recover that level and if he does that we will enjoy a lot of good football from him."
