Rosler wants Man United starlet to stay at Wigan

New Wigan boss Uwe Rosler has urged his Manchester United counterpart David Moyes to refrain from recalling Nick Powell or sending him out on loan to another Barclays Premier League club.

I think for him it is a very, very good place to be where you can play on your first loan week-in, week-out. I think if he goes in the Premier League now I don't think he will get that amount of playing time, like he gets with us.

We have high aspirations as a club, where we demand a lot and where we also want to have a very good training culture, a culture of excellence, where a player like Nick can flourish.

I really hope that David, who I have a good relationship with - I loaned three players from him when he was at Everton, will see it the same way and that Nick can progress with us.

Wigan out of the Europa League

Wigan have exited the Europa League after a 2-1 defeat at Maribor.

Uwe Rosler's men led thanks to Jordi Gomez's penalty four minutes before half-time. But Dejan Mezga levelled from the spot two minutes later, then Zeljko Filipovic's goal just before the hour mark crushed Wigan's hopes.
