thumbnail Hello,

The Spaniard, who is the first-choice candidate to succeed David Moyes at Goodison Park, has promised to resolve his future after the club's match against Aston Villa

Wigan Athletic manager Roberto Martinez insists he will make a quick decision over his future amid interest from Everton.

Goal exclusively revealed in May that the 39-year-old has already been identified as the first-choice candidate to succeed David Moyes at Goodison Park.

Following Wigan's shock FA Cup triumph over Manchester City, the club were relegated from the Premier League after a 4-1 defeat Arsenal on Tuesday.

Martinez has confirmed he will meet with Wigan chairman Dave Whelan when the season has finished to discuss his future at the DW Stadium.

"I know it can sound a bit stupid but I've never, ever thought about my situation yet," Martinez told reporters.

"It's important you get through those feelings. We had the opportunity to do that with the players over the last two days and now we're just focusing on Sunday.

"We really want to enjoy our time, as a football club it's a big day. After that we'll have enough time to look at individuals and see how we feel.

"It's going to be very straightforward and, whatever it is, it's going to be good for Wigan.

"One thing that we're going to do very quickly is understand where we are next season and what we have to do internally.

Martinez, whose been in charge of Wigan for just under four years, has assured fans he'll sort his future out as soon as possible to make sure the team has time to gel.

"Whoever is the manager at the football club will be ready and already thinking about the next campaign and make sure we're ready to start in the Championship and not starting the campaign still feeling hurt." Martinez continued.

"This football club has got incredible, solid foundations and whoever is going to be the manager is going to have a very successful time.

"I know I'm not going to be here until I'm 100, there will be one day I can't be the manager. That's something that's normal but I've always said I'm honoured and privileged to be the manager and I'll enjoy it until that's the end of it."

"Sometimes when you hear the word relegation it brings a chaotic time internally at the football club, you don't know where you are financially, you expect the worst. At Wigan Athletic this is the best that we've ever been.

"You're going to lose players in the same way that teams that win leagues lose players, so that's the modern game. We've coped with that over the last few years.

"The conveyor belt is going to carry on, the recruitment department and the development set-up is ready to do that, so that's not a problem.

"If you lose any players at this football club, you're going to lose them for the right reasons and for the right prices."
