'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Steve Gohouri Pleased To Be Back at the Latics


Wigan Athletic defender Steve Gohouri has returned to training following his involvement with the Ivory Coast squad in the recent World Cup in South Africa and he says he is happy to be back.

The 29 year old joined the Latics from German club Borussia Monchenglabach back in January on a short term deal before signing a two year extension in June and his involvement with the first team squad at the DW Stadium enabled him to have the opportunity to make his way to South Africa with the Ivory Coast though he didn`t get to play whilst there.

Speaking to the press Gohouri explained: 'I am happy to see my team-mates again'

'I went to the World Cup, we did what we could but did not qualify with four points. We were a bit unlucky against Brazil.

'I did not play but I was with the team 100 per cent. Football is about the team, not individuals."


Gohouri says he is back in training ahead of the new season and ready to help the Latics defy the odds once again and he feels the club is set for a good season, he continued: 'I am back now with coach (Roberto) Martinez. We will try to go again and defy the odds. I think Wigan will do well this season.

The big defender says that he will be more settled in the squad now that he knows Wigan a little better and he also says he feels honoured that his name has been mentioned in connection with the vacant captains role following the departure of Mario Melchiot

Gohouri concluded: 'I will be more settled here, I know the town now."

'I am honoured that my name is being associated with the captain's armband

'That means I have leadership skills.

'I have been a captain before so it will be an honour to wear it but, with it or without it, I will repay Wigan and Roberto Martinez for showing faith in me. I owe them a lot.'
