Latics Get Apology From TalkSport


Wigan Athletic were the subject of 'live on air` derogatory comments by TalkSport reporter and West Ham fan Ian Abrahams, who also went on to write further negative comments and nonsense about the club on Twitter.

The Latics do a lot of work with TalkSport, especially boss Roberto Martinez who makes himself readily available for interviews, not only post match but on a regular basis, so it was understandable that there was a bit of a back lash from the DW Stadium.

A press release confirms that the Latics have received an apology from both TalkSport and Ian Abrahams about the matter and it would appear that Abrahams has been the subject of a ticking off from his employers.

Press Release:

Following complaints from many supporters about recent comments by TalkSport radio reporter Ian Abrahams on air, and via his Twitter page, the club can confirm that it has received a full apology from both the station and Mr Abrahams. The station has made it clear that there will be no further derogatory comments directed towards Wigan Athletic by Mr Abrahams.

Wigan Athletic Head of Media Ed Jones, said: 'The matter has now been resolved satisfactorily, and as a club we wish to confirm that we will continue to enjoy a very positive relationship with TalkSport, who have clearly taken this issue seriously.'
