Wigan Athletic manager Roberto Martinez was left an angry man by his teams abject performance at Old Trafford against Manchester United which ended up with a 5-0 tonking.
Before the game Martinez had been bullish and gave a rallying call asking the Latics to show what they are made of and to get about United, unfortunately the only getting on the night was United getting five goals.
The Latics played with a lack of passion, desire and cohesion, continually squandering possession and the off the ball effort was almost non-existent with little to no movement, poor marking and a very lack lustre display in what should be one of the highlights of the season for the players.
Martinez said that the display was totally unacceptable and he also said that it has happened too many times this season, he said: ‘We never gave a game to United’
‘We were extremely, extremely disappointing in all the things we have to do to be a team.
‘You come to places like Old Trafford and it’s not good enough to be good – you have to be perfect and be solid and earn the right to express yourself and try to win the football game.
‘Today we started everything the other way round and we played like individuals and never looked like a team and when you do that you get heavily punished.
‘It has happened too many times this season and it’s unacceptable and we will have to correct it.”
