Wigan eye Ricardo Moniz as Martinez successor

Wigan Athletic chairman David Whelan has been busy drawing up a shortlist of potential replacements for Roberto Martinez, who could complete a move to Liverpool this week.

Moniz has had a successful spell with Red Bull Salzburg, where the 47-year-old has enjoyed a successful spell in Austria.

In the past, Moniz worked closely with Fulham's current manager Martin Jol; as Moniz worked as a technical coach for Jol at Tottenham Hotspur.

Moniz is very highly rated across Europe, and is keen on a move to England.
