Swansea chairman: No reason for Martinez to leave for Wigan

Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins says there's no reason for manager Roberto Martinez to consider a move to Wigan Athletic.

Jenkins said: "They've got more funds available because of the Premier League handouts, so they would probably pay more wages and the manager would have a bigger budget to work with.

"But looking at it from my point of view, I don't see it as a step up at all.

"We've far more potential for a greater support than Wigan would ever have.

"I firmly believe Roberto should be looking to the top six in the Premier League, or the top teams around the world if and when he decides to move on.

"He's young enough and he's got plenty of time on his side to do that."
