    Wigan chairman Dave Whelan insists he will do everything in his power to persuade manager Roberto Martinez to stay at the DW Arena but admits several clubs are vying for his services. It would appear a number of top flight chairmen are willing to overlook Wigan's relegation as they weigh up an approach for the Spanish tactician...
    He has had numerous offers. There's clubs bigger than Everton looking at Roberto every season because he's a quality manager.

    Raymond van Barneveld has finished above Phil Taylor for the first time in Premier League history - but he insists that will mean nothing when the duo clash in Thursday night's play-offs.
    I finished above Phil but at the end of the day what does that mean? Michael van Gerwen beat me twice in the Premier League so what happens if I reach the final and Michael is there? Does it mean he will beat me three times? You never know.

    Europa League final latest as we near kick-off:
    Blue is the Colour being belted out from the Chelsea end of the Amsterdam Arena. Meanwhile, on the pitch both sets of players are out and warming up.

    We've had the opening goal in Amsterdam and it's come for Chelsea through Fernando Torres. Here's the latest from Adam Bate:
    With a goal disallowed for Benfica early in the second half their fans were really getting behind the team.
    But there were just a few signs that the Portuguese were starting to tire with Ramires, in particular, coming into the game more and more down the right.
    It was route one when the goal came though. Great strength and composure from Torres. A feeling that Benfica have blown it?

    Heading into the final 10 minutes in Amsterdam and we could be looking at extra time as Oscar Cardozo has equalised from the spot for Benfica after Cesar Azpilicueta's handball.
    Adam Bate has the latest:
    Just as Chelsea were looking the stronger team for the first time in the match they concede. Both fans fancy a winner now.
    The Benfica substitutions just prior to the equaliser have really opened things up because Ola John is playing in an advanced left-wing position allowing Ramires to get at Nicolas Gaitan.

    Frank Lampard gave the strongest hint yet he will remain at Chelsea after leading the side to Europa League glory.
    I really, really hope so. We haven't sat down completely on it, but I hope so and the club's been brilliant so it looks good.

    Rafa Benitez paid tribute to the performance of his Chelsea side after their dramatic Europa League final victory over Benfica.
    We had some problems in the first half against a very good team, but I am really pleased for the players and everyone involved.

    Benfica coach Jorge Jesus feels his side did not have any luck after they lost the Europa League final 2-1 to Chelsea.
    We played an excellent game of football again, but we have again been penalised in a game where the only winner could be Benfica. It is difficult to say anything about the game, football is not logical.
