Toure is fired by Wigan after just nine games.
Toure’s terrible reign at Wigan has already come to an end, despite only signing a three and a half year contract there on November 29. Kolo Toure, a former defender for Manchester City and Arsenal, was fired by Wigan after the Championship underdogs went winless in all nine of his games in command.
Toure’s terrible reign at Wigan has already come to an end, despite only signing a three and a half year contract there on November 29.
The Latics only managed two points in Toure’s seven league games, and last weekend’s 2-0 loss to Luton left them at the bottom of the standings and four points from safety.
As the pressure on Toure increased, Luton eliminated Wigan from the FA Cup following a replay.
Toure was in his first management position at Wigan when he was hired to take Leam Richardson’s place. Previously, he had assistant coaching positions with the Ivory Coast, Celtic, and Leicester.
Wigan is currently searching for their fifth permanent manager in the last three years following the 41-year-resignation. old’s Wigan CEO Malachy Brannigan said, “First of all, I’d want to thank Kolo, along with Kevin and Ash, for their efforts during their tenure at the football club.
Although it was a difficult choice, the board decided that it was necessary to offer us the best chance of staying a Championship club for the upcoming season. Unfortunately, the results on the field have not been as good as we would have hoped.
“We are aware that this time of year is crucial for every football club, including our own.
Therefore, with the immediate goal of staying in the second division for next season, we will work quickly and effectively to guarantee the right person is selected as Wigan Athletic’s next permanent manager.
