Martinez Has 'Huge Feeling' For Swansea City

Former Swansea City boss Roberto Martinez says he has a 'huge feeling' and is proud of the club he spent 7 years at.

The Spaniard, now in charge of bottom club Wigan Athletic prepares his side to take on his former employers on Saturday - hoping for a vital 3 points to help their battle against relegation.

Martinez received praise from current Swans manager Brendan Rodgers for the progress he made at the Liberty Stadium.

He spoke about the club and his time there as manager:

'I have a huge feeling for Swansea, it is a special club.'

'It is understandable when you spend seven seasons there like I did going through a rollercoaster of emotions trying to achieve promotion as a player.

'As a manager we were able to be very successful starting from scratch.

'Those are memories I will never lose and I am extremely proud of them - I always hope the best for them but on Saturday I won't be able to share that feeling.

'I am looking at the position we are in with Wigan, more than ever it is a really important period for the club.

'Swansea are not a newly-promoted side any more and for the first two-thirds of the season they deserve respect and huge credit from everyone.

'They will come and get on the ball, keep the ball for long spells and we have to find a way to carry on playing well and achieving the points we need - that is my focus and my concentration.

'If I was concentrating on other things I wouldn't be helping myself.'

Swansea City will be looking to avoid a third consecutive defeat when they face Wigan Athletic on Saturday (3pm).
