*New Wigan manager is standing by, ready to speak to Sky Sports News reporter, Ed Chamberlain*
*2 hours later, at the Sky Sports News broadcast*
Sam, thanks for joining us in what I'm sure is a very busy schedule at Wigan. So far, how are you finding it?
Not a problem Ed. It's great actually, the staff, players & fans have made me feel so welcomed from the moment I came in.
Well that brings me to my next question, are you surprised that they welcomed you straight away, given the relationship the players & fans had with previous manager, Roberto Martinez?
Yes & no, obviously if you've grown attached to something or someone, you don't like it when people take it away from you, so in that respect, I'm very surprised. Also I think the fans knew it was time for a change & the players know this is a fresh start for them, so no.
Finally Sam, what can we expect in the transfer market? If anything...
You can expect arrivals, and you can expect departures, like at any other club. Thanks Ed, been a pleasure.
Well I guess we can expect something then...thanks Sam, hopefully speak to you again soon.
Ed Chamberlain - "You remember a couple of hours back, we briefly spoke to new Wigan boss, Sam Wilson. He said you can expect arrivals & departures...We have three new arrivals at the DW Stadium! Free agents Ferrie Bodde, John Mensah & Anthony Vanden Borre have all joined the Premier League outfit.
