Spanish investors prepared to buy Wigan Athletic even if they are relegated

Posted on February 17, 2021 in WAFC

Wigan Athletic’s Spanish bidders are prepared to stay patient in their bid to take control of the club. The Greater Manchester outfit were one of the in-form teams during the backend of the 2019/2020 Championship season, but were still relegated after the final matchday due to the 12-point deduction for entering administration.

A win over Rochdale will make it three victories on the trot for the former FA Cup champions who suffered relegation from the English Championship at the end of the last campaign.


The two wins recorded from the last two games have taken Wigan Athletic closer to the places outside the relegation zone. As things stand, Wigan Athletic arenow two points away from final safe place on the league standings after the Latics recorded six points from the last two games.

Spanish Investors Can Take Over Wigan Athletic

Posted on November 17, 2020 in WAFC

 

Money is very important for any of the sports clubs for the maintenance of their team. Thus a Spanish investor wants to take over Wigan Athletic and is waiting for approval from the authorities of the English Premier League. In this process, they are getting help from the former boss of the team, Roberto Martinez. He helped Wigan Athletic to win the FA Cup beating Manchester City in 2013.


The day has been written with golden letters in the history of the club. He has initiated the talks with the club from the investors and is helping them to decide the strategy to take over the league one club. After his honeymoon with Wigan Athletic, Martinez went to Everton and from there he went to be the coach of the Belgium national team. But he still had a place in his heart for Wigan and that has paid off for the League One club having an opportunity to have investors for them.
