Wigan Athletic’s administrators confident of completing takeover deal, despite search for buyer

North of England Correspondent

There are calls for changes in the way English football is run to prevent clubs getting into financial difficulties.

Wigan Athletic went into administration nearly two months ago and the administrators said today they’re in better financial shape after selling some players and the training ground but are yet to find a buyer.

The town’s MP says it’s not just a problem facing Wigan and that fans need to be more involved with clubs management structures.
