Leicester City can confirm that First Team Coach Kolo Toure will leave the Football Club to take up a new position as manager of Championship side Wigan Athletic.

The former Ivory Coast defender has been part of manager Brendan Rodgers’ coaching team at Leicester City since February 2019, adding the experience of an enormously successful playing career to our First Team operation. His move to the Latics represents his first step into senior management.

Everybody at Leicester City would thank Kolo for his contribution during a successful period for the Club wish him the very best as he begins his career in management.

I don't think he'll be missed







*although of course I'm saying that with pretty much zero knowledge of what he actually did.

One of the strangest appointments in recent times. He just doesn’t strike me as management material, particularly at Championship level.

Missing him already. Thank goodness.

Why do people assume Kolo is a bad coach? What's this based on?

Good luck to him, hope he does well - equally hope we won't miss him too much and have an adequate replacement.

I think it’s a reasonable assumption that he was at least partially responsible for coaching our defence, which has been absolute dogarse for a long time. Obviously, other factors will have an effect; it could be he’s a perfectly fine coach in the right circumstances. If Wigan’s defence suddenly improves we’ll have our answer.

Reports of him sitting on the bench texting throughout games?
The shambles of our defence until recently?

Wow, we missed a key part of this story... Anyone see who his Assistant Manager is at Wigan?

Cracking bunch of coaches...

Kolo's also taken Ashvir Johal with him, who was part of our coaching setup.

Today is the third game in a row that Kolo's defensive genius comes unstuck by conceding 4.

Who could have predicted such a start?

It has to be one of the most stupid appointments ever made, anywhere, by anyone. In recent memory, Liz Truss as PM is probably the only one that surpasses it.
