John Benson To Step Down At Wigan Athletic

John Benson To Step Down At Wigan Athletic


According to the Mirror Wigan Athletic General Manager John Benson is set to leave the club after losing a so called `power struggle` with team manager Roberto Martinez over new signings.

Benson has a long association with the Latics firstly being John Deehans assistant manager before taking the reins himself and guiding the club to within a whisker of promotion losing to Gillingham in the 1999/2000 play-off final at Wembley.

He left briefly for a stint at Birmingham City as their General Manager but returned to the Latics to work alongside Paul Jewell who he apparently didn`t see eye to eye with.

Benson has worked well during his time at Wigan bringing some class players to the club and he can certainly spot a player, he is credited with the signings of Graeme Jones, Andy Liddell, Arry DeZeuuw and Mario Melchiot amongst others

Good old John. I met and spoke with him in a nice cosy steam room a few times at Wrightington country club. Nice man, down to earth, good scout and a gent.
