Martinez reveals Colunga admiration

Roberto Martinez has spoken of his admiration for Adrian Colunga and expressed his belief the Spanish striker would fit into Wigan's side. Colunga has impressed since being loaned to Real Zaragoza from Recreativo Huelva in January and reports have linked the 25-year-old with a move to the DW Stadium. Martinez watched Colunga score in Zaragoza's 3-3 draw with Villarreal on the final weekend of the Spanish Primera Division season and feels his compatriot could thrive in the Premier League. "Colunga is a good player who has done very well this season," Martinez said. "He has been a good player for Real Zaragoza, but not only for his speed. "Colunga is also intelligent, and he is a player who always creates problems and is very smart both with and without the ball. "The way he has adapted to Zaragoza demonstrates the great player he is. And he wouldn't have trouble adapting to the way we play in England."
