Whelan: Martinez may not take Reds job

Wigan chairman Dave Whelan insists there is no sure-fire guarantee Roberto Martinez would take the Liverpool manager's job should it be offered to him.

The Latics chief revealed on Thursday that the Spaniard had taken a break from a family holiday in the Caribbean to meet top executives from Fenway Sports Group in Miami. There are still other candidates to consider as FSG were hopeful of drawing up a shortlist of up to five people to interview next week.

But Whelan believes the new structure being implemented at Anfield, with a yet-to-be-appointed technical director overseeing general football matters, would not be appealing to Martinez, and he told Sky Sports: "A little bit will have to do with the attitude of the owners because I don't think they fully understand the game of football in England."
