Wigan manager Roberto Martinez has dismissed speculation that he is ready to quit the club this summer.

It was claimed Martinez had reached an agreement with chairman Dave Whelan that he would leave the DW Stadium, regardless of whether the Latics win their relegation fight.

However, after the momentous 1-0 win over Manchester United, Martinez claimed the stories were not true.

"I heard that and was very surprised," he said. "You wonder where that rumour is coming from. At this stage of the season there is a real fight amongst the bottom five, you feel stories can upset clubs internally.

"There is nothing true about it. I signed a new deal in the summer for an extra two years.

"That was my conversation with the chairman and nothing has changed since."
