Roberto Martinez has hinted he may step down as manager of Wigan following the club's relegation from the Premier League. The Spaniard, who has been heavily linked with a move to Everton, will meet with Wigan chairman Dave Whelan on Monday and promises to make a quick decision about his future. Martinez says Wigan has ''incredible, solid foundations and whoever is going to be the manager is going to have a very successful time.''
