Latics fans in Germany watch training and meet the players.Wigan Athletic in Germany for tonight’s cancelled match against SC Wiedenbruck were treated to a private viewing of today’s training session by way of compensation, before meeting and chatting to the players, manager and staff of the club.
Uwe Rosler said: “It was all we could do, they have travelled a long way to be here and were disappointed not to watch the game tonight. We welcomed them to the hotel complex and I think everyone really enjoyed it.”
Emmerson Boyce said: “It was a pleasure to meet these guys, and I hope they had a good time watching training then meeting us.”
Latics fan Jerry Freeman said: “We could only make it over for tonight’s game so the gesture was really appreciated. It’s not every day you get stand around and chat to the manager and players so this was brilliant. I don’t know how many other clubs would do something like this for their fans.”
