Boss praise for Latics heroes
Roberto Martinez has paid tribute to the Wigan players and says it is them not him that have kept the club in the Premier League.
Latics ensured they will be spending an eighth successive season in the top flight with Monday night's 1-0 victory at Blackburn that also sent Rovers crashing into the Championship. Martinez has been hailed for working wonders with limited resources at the DW Stadium but the Spaniard says the credit has to go to the players who have dug deep in the last six weeks to get the points needed. "It doesn't seem real yet," Martinez told Sky Sports. "Its a great feeling because you could feel the tension and it was a cagey affair. To do that and to keep a clean sheet - to have that and what it means is incredible. Eight years in the Premier League. "It's been a great run but football is about the players. It's very easy to say the right things but what matters is when you cross the white line to be brave and arrogant. "All I do is allow them to enjoy their football and the credit goes to the players. You get really high pressure. We've been in the bottom three for a long time. They made the football club proud and the chairman proud."
