17 May 2017

Defender remembers his stay at the DW Stadium ahead of leaving the club at the end of the 2016-17 season.

  • Wigan Athletic defender Stephen Warnock leaves the club after 14-month stay at the DW Stadium.
  • Warnock helped Latics to Sky Bet League One title before captaining the club in 2016-17 season.
  • Warnock: "I am sure Wigan Athletic will bounce back."
Following the announcement that Stephen Warnock will be leaving the club at the end of his contract this summer, we caught up with the 35-year-old to discuss his time with the club and what the future holds.

Warnock, who passed 500 career league appearances during his time with Latics, told the club's official website on Wednesday.

"It's difficult to say goodbye because I enjoyed such a high at this club when I first joined and I have those good memories forever.

"Last season was so disappointing for everyone and it hurt me to suffer a first relegation in my career.

"It left me questioning myself and whether I could have done more and that's not a nice feeling.

"I will always remain thankful for the opportunity the club gave me and also the way in which the fans embraced me and supported the team through the highs and lows.

"I am sure that Wigan Athletic will bounce back next season and I wish everyone at the club well in the future."
