Wigan finally confirm Martinez as boss

After Steve Bruce accepted the post of Sunderland's manager, Wigan were looking for a manager to take over at the DW Stadium(formerly JJB stadium).

After weeks of speculation and announcements by the board,Swansea City's Roberto Martinez has been officially announced as the manager to take over.

Originally the official declaration was to come on Thursday but Wigan couldn't resolve the back staff issue with Martinez and have now come to an agreement with Swansea too.

Former Wigan player,Martinez, has signed a 3yr contract with the club.He would be unveiled to the media on Tuesday.

The Spaniard told the official website :

The club has always been close to my heart. I am looking forward to getting stuck in and taking on teams in the best league in the world.

I cannot wait for my first game, it seems like a long time away but there is a lot of work to do before then.

Are Wigan fans happy with the move?
