Wigan appoint Kolo Toure as manager

Wigan have appointed Kolo Toure as their new manager on a three-and-a-half year deal.

The Ivorian, 41, who had been working as first-team coach at Leicester since February 2019, held talks with the Championship side earlier this month and has now completed his move to the DW Stadium.

Toure worked under the likes of Arsene Wenger, Jurgen Klopp and Roberto Mancini during a playing career that saw him represent Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City, but he has no previous management experience.

 

The 118-cap Ivory Coast international will be joined by Kevin Betsy and Ashvir Johal at Wigan, while Rob Kelly will be his assistant. James Beattie has left the club.

Toure will now travel to Turkey to join his new players, where they are undergoing a mid-season training camp before resuming their Championship campaign at Millwall on Saturday December 10.
