Wigan Chairman Dave Whelan says his dream has come true as Wigan won the FA Cup.

"I thought we would get Man City in the final and win 1-0," he said on ITV Sport. "The dream has come true. I'm repaid for 1960 when I broke my leg and we lost the match.

"We've now got to stay in the Premier League, we've done everything then. This is going to lift the lads so much."

Roberto Martinez tells of 'incredible' moment

Roberto Martinez has spoken of the 'incredible' moment of winning the FA Cup.

He told ITV Sport:

"It's an incredible moment. At half-time we were all really down as we thought we had played really well in the first half.

"There was a real feeling of maybe we had wasted our opportunity, but this group of players keep on fighting.

"I was thinking about extra-time and how to use the extra man advantage. It was incredible seeing the goal going in."
