WI­GAN cap­tain Gary Cald­well has as­sured fans that Lat­ics play­ers are work­ing hard dur­ing their warm weather train­ing camp.

Wi­gan – who are sec­ond-bot­tom of the Pre­mier League, three points adrift of safety with 12 games to go – are in Tener­ife this week and pic­tures have been tweeted of the squad ly­ing by the pool.

But Cald­well (above) is­sued a state­ment to re­as­sure fans that they are also putting in plenty of ef­fort.

“We’re train­ing twice a day in the heat and the squad is really be­ing put through its paces – more so than we prob­a­bly could have done at home judg­ing by the tem­per­a­tures back there,” he said.

“Ob­vi­ously, you need your down­time, but we re­alise that one or two pic­tures of play­ers ly­ing by the pool that ap­peared on Twit­ter may have come across as dis­re­spect­ful to our sup­port­ers, so we have de­cided to take them down to avoid con­fu­sion.”
