Embarrassed Latics To Refund Fans

FOOTBALL : Wigan’s players have offered to refund supporters who travelled to Sunday’s 9-1 thrashing at Tottenham.

Wigan’s players have offered to refund supporters who travelled to Sunday’s 9-1 thrashing at Tottenham.
The Latics crashed to the second worst defeat in Barclays Premier League history as they conceded eight second-half goals at White Hart Lane. Defender Mario Melchiot admits the result was embarrassing and, along with the rest of his well-paid team-mates, will pay away fans the cost of tickets.
“We feel that as a group of players we badly let down our supporters, and this is a gesture we have to make and pay them back for their tremendous loyalty,” Melchiot told the club’s official website.
“There is not a lot else to say, just that as a group of professionals we were embarrassed by the way we performed, we feel it was below our standards and this is something we feel we owe to the fans.
“Now we have to draw a line under the game, focus completely on training this week and bounce back on Saturday.
“We are professionals, we will take it on the chin and move on but it’s important that we do not take our supporters for granted.”
Wigan return to action when they host Sunderland this weekend.
