Cattermole to give new Wigan boss Martinez a chance

Wigan midfielder Lee Cattermole has insisted he will give new Latics boss Roberto Martinez a chance before deciding what he will do with his future.

The England U21 international crossed to Wigan to play under Steve Bruce who has recently taken the post at Sunderland, but will not rush to the Stadium of Light to be with his former boss.

"I had a good year last year and Steve Bruce brought me to Wigan so it is a bit of a shame he has gone, but that's football," he told The Evening Chronicle.

"Managers change, players change all the time so hopefully I'll be able to do the same for Martinez.

"I obviously really enjoyed last year and there's a lot of changes at Wigan, I think we have lost our manager and our staff now.

"I'm going to concentrate on the European Championships and get back, see what the situation is with Wigan and meet the new manager and see how it goes."
