WIGAN Athletic manager Roberto Martinez has been crowned manager of the month for April.

The Spaniard saw his Latics side enjoy a wonderful run of form throughout the month, recording famous victories over Manchester United and Arsenal before the 4-0 thrashing of Newcastle last Saturday.

The three top four scalps were rewarded this afternoon and Martinez was, as you would expect, very modest when collecting it, dedicating it to his staff, players and the club’s loyal fans.

“It’s a fantastic award and I collect it on behalf of everyone at Wigan Athletic, we should all be very proud,” he said.

“I’ve said many times how incredible our fans are in the way they have supported the Club on our amazing journey, but in recent weeks we’ve needed them more than ever they took the initiative and changed the fortunes of the team; arriving before the home games to welcome the players in and allowing them to be mentally focused.”
