And what does his mantra of ‘Sin Miedo’ mean?

Near enough, Tonker.



Clue: I think the poster was created by the talented local graffiti artist who could be known as Latics’ Banksy.

It is a drawing of Roberto Martinez,ex player and manager of Wigan Athletic and Sin Miedo was always his message and motto.

Thanks, Fossil.

I had to do some research as I hadn’t heard of Martinez’s motto before, and found this mention in a Wigan Today article - July 2020:

Roberto Martinez, the FA Cup-winning manager, was the man who introduced the mantra ‘Sin Miedo’ – ‘Without Fear’ – into Wiganese vocabulary.

This is not authentic. Roberto Martinez would speak in his native language.
He would say, "Sense Por"!
