Wigan manager hints at potential departure following yet another defeat

Wigan Athletic manager Paul Cook has hinted at a potential departure for himself following yet another defeat for his side this weekend.

The disappointed boss watched his side lose once again, this time a 3-1 defeat away to Queens Park Rangers with Nahki Wells, Ebere Eze and Jordan Hugill getting a goal each after Wigan’s Cedric Kipre broke the deadline after two minutes.

The Latics’ have now been defeated five times in a row in both league and cup, since winning their opener against Cardiff City earlier this month.

 

He said to the media: “I don’t want to become one of those boring, repetitive managers. If results stay the same, someone else will be speaking to you – that’s how football is, that’s the nature of the game.

“I pride myself in my teams and how we play but that wasn’t a team I enjoyed watching today.

“It wasn’t good enough.

“I’m always a manager who fully backs his players. But I’m at my wits’ end with them at the moment. That’s nowhere near where we want to be as a team and as a club.

“Supporters clapping you off at the end is what I pride myself on as a manager. They travelled 250 miles and aren’t clapping us off after that, that’s for sure.

“If results stay the same then someone else will be speaking to you. That’s how football is. That’s the nature of the game and how it is.”

 

Following the full time whistle, fans took to vent their frustration with some wanting the manager to leave, others however were more supportive of him – check out what they had to say on the next page.
