Wigan Athletic target Kolo Touré for vacant manager role.


Kolo Touré
Kolo joined Celtic as a first-team coach is 2017, and followed boss Brendan Rodgers to Leicester in 2019.

Former Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool defender Kolo Touré is reportedly the running favourite for Wigan's vacant managerial role following the sacking of Leam Richardson.


Touré's younger brother, Yaya, had already publicly ruled himself out of contention for the post.


On Yaya, it is worth noting that Wigan had been attracted to the idea of bringing him to the DW Stadium, but at no point did they offer the Ivorian the job.


Kolo, 41, has worked under Brendan Rodgers at both Celtic and Leicester, where he is currently first-team coach - during which he obtained his pro-license.


It would be his first time in the managerial hot-seat if he were to take the Wigan job.


Rob Kelly stood in as interim boss for the win over Blackpool on the 12th of November, though the Latics currently sit in the Championship relegation zone on goal difference.
