Wigan chairman Dave Whelan has pledged to do all he can to keep manager Roberto Martinez happy at the club.

A week ago it appeared the Latics owner would be looking for a new boss after the Spaniard held talks with Liverpool over the vacancy at Anfield. That job has now been offered to Swansea's Brendan Rodgers, but Martinez has rejected the advances of Aston Villa for the second successive summer as he wants to continue building at Wigan.

But it was only after a long meeting with Whelan on Wednesday that he got his way with a request for greater investment in facilities. "We want Roberto to be happy at Wigan and we'll be aiming to make sure we do everything to help him," said Whelan, who has revealed a full-size indoor training pitch costing £1.5million was high on Martinez's list of priorities.
