The Latics lost their fight to stay in the top-flight, and whilst Martinez's own future remains in doubt - he has no doubt that the club will be the strongest in the Championship.

"I don't fear that Wigan will disappear without trace because I know that we have the foundations," he said.

"I'm not saying that we are stronger than Wolves. I don't know what they are doing internally.

"Maybe you get so hurt at what happened that it is difficult to react.

"But we are already working on next season and with or without me Wigan will bounce back. With the parachute money, we should be the strongest team in the Championship."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
