Wigan axe ex-Arsenal ace Kolo

Kolo Toure has been sacked by Wigan – after failing to win any of his NINE games in charge.

The ex-Arsenal defender left his role as a coach at Leicester in November 2022 to take his first managerial job.

But a torrid run of results means the Latics have axed the Ivorian already, with the club bottom of the Championship.

Assistants Kevin Betsy and Ashvir Johal have also departed.

Wigan’s CEO Malachy Brannigan said: “Firstly, I’d like to thank Kolo, along with Kevin and Ash, for their efforts during their time at the football club.

“Unfortunately, the results on the field have not been as we would have liked and as tough a decision as this was, the board felt it necessary to give us the best possible chance of remaining a Championship club next season.

“We know that this time of year is a key period for any football club, ourselves included.

“Therefore, we will now work swiftly and effectively to ensure the right person is appointed as the next permanent manager of Wigan Athletic, with the immediate objective of remaining in the second tier for next season.”
