Manager Profile

Left Post:





Gary Caldwell is out of action following two sackings in the space of a year. Caldwell was firstly axed by Wigan, months after leading the club into the Championship, before paying the price for a poor start to the 2017/8 season with Chesterfield.

Caldwell made his bow into the managerial arena with Wigan in April 2015 following the departure of Malky Mackay.

Caldwell, a club legend having made over 100 appearances as a player, led the Latics back up to the Championship at the first time of asking. However, after a poor start to the 2015/16 season he was sent packing.

Caldwell only drew the curtains on his playing career in February of that year (2015), joining Wigan's coaching academy, before landing his first managerial role with the club shortly after.

Caldwell was unable to keep the Latics in the Championship, with the 2012/13 FA Cup winners suffering a second relegation in three seasons, however he then orchestrated an instant return to the second-tier.

Gary Caldwell Quotes

It was hard because I had played with a lot of the players - and the next day I was their manager. It's difficult to clear out a lot of high-earning footballers in a short space of time.

I've made no secret of the fact that I wanted to move into management when the time was right. I didn't expect that to come along as quickly as this but, in football, you need to take opportunities when they arise.
