Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez is looking forward to their friendly with Real Zaragoza.

The Spaniard also admits it will be an emotional night on a personal level, 15 years on from making the biggest decision of his life to swap the land of paella for the land of the pie.

“The game will be an exciting one for the fans,” Martinez said.

“I left Zaragoza to come to Wigan Athletic, and to have witnessed the changes that have taken place here in that space of time has provided a nice story.

“Zaragoza will be a nice team to play against and it’s also one of those games I would love to see Wigan Athletic involved in regularly in European competitions very soon.”
