Championship strugglers Wigan have parted company with manager Gary Caldwell after a poor start to season.
Wigan, who were promoted last season, currently sit in a lowly 23rd place in the lower tier.
It’s undoubtedly the toughest decision I’ve had to make since becoming Chairman.
We deservedly won the League One title last season. However, we have not managed to carry on that momentum into this season and, after careful consideration over a period of time, I feel that we need to act now in the best long term interests of the club.
We thank Gary for all the hard work he has put in and wish him all the best for the future.
We need to identify a new manager who can have an immediate impact and deliver success in the long term.
