Wigan Athletic boss Uwe Rosler says they owe their run to the FA Cup semis to Roberto Martinez.

Everton boss Martinez has been hugely supportive, says Rosler.

"I like Roberto," he says. "We had dinner soon after I came here. He is a very friendly, very helpful man. I like to soak up as much information as I can and he is one of the top managers. I’ve studied him very much, wasn’t surprised he found a tactic to cause Arsene Wenger problems. I was very impressed with how good Everton were at the beginning of the game without the ball — to break the rhythm, to deny them space, to counter-attack quickly.

"I was also impressed by how disciplined they were. They got their rewards. It was good for a young manager to see."
