Wigan Athletic chief executive Brenda Spencer is confident Roberto Martinez will prove a success at Everton.

Martinez still has it all to prove to Everton fans, who are split over whether they are getting an FA Cup-winning manager or a relegated one.

Brenda has no such doubts, telling The Sun: “He kept us in the Premier League for three of eight seasons we were there — it was down to Roberto.

“Put him at a club with the right players and he will do really well. He’s still only 39 — by the time he’s late 40s he will be a top manager.

“If he’s got the players to play good football — and there are a lot of good ones at Everton — he will be a success. It’s a no-brainer.”
