Kolo Toure has been named the new manager of Wigan Athletic on a three-and-a-half-year contract.
On Tuesday morning, the English club sent out a tweet via its Twitter account to make the announcement.
“We are delighted to confirm the appointment of Kolo Toure as the club’s new First Team Manager!
“Welcome to Wigan, Kolo,” Wigan tweeted.
Toure, who had been working as first-team coach at Leicester since February 2019, held talks with the Championship side earlier this month.
The 41-year-old Ivorian has now completed his move to the DW Stadium.
Toure played for Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool during his career.
