Wigan chairman Whelan slates Martinez announcement for Tuesday

The future of Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez will be confirmed Tuesday.

Latics chairman Dave Whelan has successfully fought off approaches from clubs before for the 39-year-old Martinez but admits it will be harder to keep his highly-regarded manager in the Championship.

Whelan said: "I am due to meet Roberto for lunch on Tuesday and we'll announce what is happening after that.

"I can't offer him Premier League football but we are still a club in a strong position to go for promotion next season.

"I'll tell him we can keep any player he wants to."
