Kolo Toure gets new managerial job in England


Wigan Athletic have appointed Kolo Toure as their new manager on a three-and-a-half-year deal.

The English club made the announcement in a tweet via its Twitter handle on Tuesday morning.

“We are delighted to confirm the appointment of Kolo Toure as the club’s new First Team Manager!

“Welcome to Wigan, Kolo,” Wigan tweeted.

Toure, who had been working as first-team coach at Leicester since February 2019, held talks with the Championship side earlier this month.

The 41-year-old Ivorian has now completed his move to the DW Stadium.

Toure played for Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool during his career.
