Wigan chairman Whelan reluctant to lead team out in FA Cup final

Wigan Athletic chairman Dave Whelan is reluctant to lead the team out at Wembley in the FA Cup final.

Whelan said there was bound to be a friendly argument with manager Roberto Martinez over who leads Wigan out on final day.

"I want Roberto to do it but he'll probably insist I do.

"This is the best day as chairman by far. Getting to the Premier League was a super day and it will be another super day when we stay there this season, because we have a fight on.

"But this is another step on the ladder for our wonderful football club."
