Paul Douglas, the Championship club’s CEO, argues the Premier League could help the lower divisions and remain the ‘strongest division in Europe’.
The former Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool defender succeeds Leam Richardson, who was sacked earlier this month.
Kolo Toure has taken his first job in management by taking charge of Championship club Wigan. Former defender Toure made his name in English football with Arsenal, winning the Premier League in 2004 along with a pair of FA Cups. Joining Toure at the DW Stadium are ex-Arsenal academy manager Kevin Betsy, who recently left the manager’s position at Crawley, and Leicester youth coach Ashvir Johal.
