Coach Colo Touré (41, Côte d’Ivoire) suffered a ‘great humiliation’ in just 59 days. After taking the helm of Wigan Athletic (England), he was notified of his dismissal after failing to get out of the swamp of sluggishness, such as failing to win for nine games. 메이저놀이터
On the 27th (Korean time), Wigan said on the club’s official website, “We inform you that we have parted ways with coach Touré.” We decided that now is the right time to make a change.”
Previously, coach Touré took up the managerial position for the first time since he began his leadership career when he took over as Wigan coach in November last year. Previously, he served as a coach at Celtic (Scotland) and Leicester City (England) while assisting coach Brandon Rodgers (50, Northern Ireland).
As much as it was an unexpected ‘surprise’ appointment, attention was drawn, but the result was disastrous. As he had no managerial experience, his concerns were greater than his expectations, but his expectations were not wrong. Even after Toure took over as manager, Wigan remained in the relegation zone. On the contrary, the ranking has fallen further than before, and is currently staying at the ‘lowest’.
In particular, coach Toure failed to win a single win while directing nine official matches. In the EFL Championship, they recorded 2 draws and 5 losses in 7 matches, and in the FA Cup, they were eliminated in the 3rd round without winning during 2 matches, including a rematch. The record from 9 matches is 3 draws and 6 losses. It is bound to be a disgraceful directorial debut.
In the end, as the possibility of relegation increased, Wigan pulled out the knife while sacking Touré and the coaches appointed together. As a successor, Sean Maloney (40, Scotland), who played for Wigan for four years from 2011, is being mentioned as a strong candidate.
Coach Touré made a name for himself in the English Premier League (EPL) during his active career. After joining Arsenal (England) in 2002, he played an active role as a main player and played a key role in the undefeated championship in the 2003-2004 season. Afterwards, he continued his career through Manchester City and Liverpool (and above England).
