Ivorian Kolo Toure has been sacked as manager of Wigan, the Championship, having failed to win a single of nine matches since he was on the bench, the English second division club announced on Thursday.
Unfortunately the results on the pitch were not what we would have liked to see
,” said Wigan manager Malachy Brannigan.
The 41-year-old former Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool defender signed up for three seasons with the “Latics” at the end of November, for his first experience at the head of a professional team.
But Wigan have only taken two points in seven Championship games, and find themselves last in the standings, four lengths behind the first non-relegation player.
Wigan were also knocked out of the FA Cup after a draw and then a defeat against Luton.
Prior to Wigan, Touré was an assistant coach at Ivory Coast, Celtic Glasgow and Leicester.
