Wigan Cup hero McManaman: Everton broke my heart
McManaman scored in Saturday's FA Cup win at his former club.
"It was the best thing that ever happened to me to be honest, though it broke my heart at the time," said McManaman.
"It was make or break and I could have packed in but I kept on going and luckily Wigan came calling. I haven't looked back since then. This is the biggest goal I have scored."
