You thought the new West Ham captain was bad, look who is the new Wigan skipper, lol...

Recommended Posts

Mario Melchiot named Latics skipperMario Melchiot has been handed the captain's armband as Wigan Athletic step up their preparations for the new Premiership season.The Dutch international, who turned down a host of top European clubs to join Latics this summer, has been chosen by Chris Hutchings because of his experience and leadership qualities.Melchiot has skippered the side in their opening two pre-season games while the squad were away in Holland and the Latics chief has now given him the role on a permanent basis.Latics boss Chris Hutchings said: "I'm blessed with many leaders in my squad but I have decided Mario is going to be skipper this season. He has all the qualities I look for in a captain and I like the fact he plays at the back; I think that gives him a good perspective on what's happening in a game."Mario's appointment makes it a case of 'Double Dutch' for the Latics captaincy, as he takes over from fellow countryman Arjan De Zeeuw, who left the club in the summer.

Neill is a great choice of captain and obvious. Anyone who fails to see that doesn't understand football.Melchiot aint too surprising seeing as they released the Dutch geezer at the back...

Neill is a good captain. Look through the West Ham, who else would be more suited...As for Wigan they were a joke when they appointed Hutchings.

Thats has to be a joke?He's probably one of their better players so i'm not to suprised that he got picked.Although its still bizzare seeing as he's prone to making bare mistakes.
