CALD DENIES POOL PARTY
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.”
