Following yesterdays game at the DW Stadium between Wigan Athletic and Wolverhampton Wanderers both managers, Robert Martinez and Mick McCarthy spoke about the game and that tackle, lets see what the said:
Latics boss Roberto Martinez
‘I was extremely proud of the players, how they found the solutions, how they learned from the last experience against Sunderland and we created many chances’
‘The pleasing aspect was we limited Wolves to nothing. The maturity and responsibility of the players in a no-win situation was very, very good.
‘It needed a bit of magic to open the scoring but you could see after the first goal it was going to be a lot easier.’
‘It wasn’t just the first contact. Karl catches Jordi with his knee, he comes with real force and you fear the worst. I felt it was a broken leg. He was a very fortunate man.’

Wolves boss Mick McCrthy
‘I’ve no argument at all with the red card,’ said the Wolves boss. ‘It’s ill-judged, it’s mistimed – it’s very theatrical. We’ve a lad at our place with a broken leg for six months from a tackle from a lad who went for the ball.
‘It didn’t look as theatrical and unfortunately, with Karl being in the press and the media so often recently, it was never going to be any other result.’
