The saga goes on, as following his £10,000 fine by the FA, Roberto Martinez now says he will look to appeal the ban if he believes there is subsequent grounds to do so. The FA will send Wigan a written confirmation of the verdict at some point tomorrow, depending on the wording of the verdict, Martinez may have room to move.
It is all ifs, buts and maybes and the likely hood is that it will be water tight and Martinez will have to accept the ban. Although it looks very much like he will try to fight any charges.
Martinez has said:
"We have had the hearing and now we are waiting to see if we can appeal the decision because it is something I don't agree with,"
"At the moment it is one of those situations you have to accept but we will look into the written outcome and see if we can appeal it."
"If you see the comments they are not disrespectful comments at all to the referee. I wasn't talking about the referee, I was talking about the figure of the referee in those certain games."
"I was talking about the experience that we at Wigan Athletic have had going away from home and unfortunately the calls we have had of late."
"I would never question the integrity of the referee or question if the referee was biased towards a decision."
