Wigan boss Martinez: We're not in Europe yet

Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez says reaching the FA Cup final hasn't yet secured Europa League qualification.

Now they only require the winners of tomorrow's semi-final between Manchester City and Chelsea to qualify for the Champions League to be certain of a berth in next season's Europa League, whether they win or lose at Wembley next month.

"It is not certain yet," Martinez said. "It is a little percentage that is not the case.

"But when I arrived, one of the targets was to get Wigan into Europe. It was the next possible dream.

"We have been in the Premier League eight seasons in a row. Getting into Europe would take the club to a whole different level. It is an incredible possibility."
