Celtic Treble hero becomes managerial casualty after just TWO MONTHS in the job

The managerial circuit should be renamed the managerial circus.

With chances of getting a top job at any club limited, the time given if you are actually lucky enough to be selected is just ridiculous.

Don’t believe me? Just ask Kolo Toure.

The former Celtic defender was sacked by Wigan Athletic tonight after just two months in charge.

Toure took over the Championship strugglers in November last year and after a string of results that left the club rooted to the bottom of the table, Wigan pulled the trigger.

A statement read, “Firstly, I’d like to thank Kolo, along with Kevin and Ash, for their efforts during their time at the Football Club. 

“Unfortunately, the results on the field have not been as we would have liked and as tough a decision as this was, the Board felt it necessary to give us the best possible chance of remaining a Championship club next season.

“We know that this time of year is a key period for any football club, ourselves included. Therefore, we will now work swiftly and effectively to ensure the right person is appointed as the next permanent manager of Wigan Athletic, with the immediate objective of remaining in the Second Tier for next season.”
