Kilbane returns to the DW

Former club legend, Kevin Kilbane has recently returned to the DW - taking up the vacant managerial role. The role has been empty since the end of last season, when Roberto Martinez left the Latics for Everton, after the club were relegated from the Premier League - despite winning the FA Cup.

Kilbane played 79 games for Wigan during his 3 year spell, before he left for Hull. The Englishman retired from Football on the 8th December 2012 - due to injuries. During his international career, Kilbane played for the Republic Of Ireland which was where his parents were raised, he was capped 110 times for his country - one of the most capped players for Republic Of Ireland.

Kilbane recently told BBC Sport : It's amazing to be back at the club again and be around the fans again - who have already shown their support towards me. I hope that we can secure promotion back to the Premier League, that's where we belong - I'm confident we can achieve that too.

Author's Notes

I have decided to go with my favourite club and the team I love Wigan Athletic. I have done this as I have recently been playing a Wigan save which I have really enjoyed and I decided to make it into a story. I hope you all enjoy this story as much as I will! Enjoy! :)
;) Love the title, Good luck!
Nice start to it, should be an interesting one, all the best!

Kilbane confident of promotion

R = Reporter
K = Kilbane

R - Hello Kevin and first welcome back to Wigan, I guess! Firstly how does it feel to be back at the DW?
K - It's fantastic to be back at the DW! It's my home here at this club, it's great to be here again.

R - Has the mood of the club changed since you were last here?
K - I'd say so, yes - the mood has changed in a positive manner - the fans have been a lot more supportive definitely

R - With the team recently being relegated from the Premier League - do you think you can go straight back up?
K - Well yes! If I didn't believe we could go straight back up - I wouldn't be here would I? The squad has so much depth and this will give us a big advantage in the league.

R - The team are also in the Europa League this season - for the first time in the clubs history. Do you think you can make a impression?
K - I can't say at this moment in time - we'll have to wait until we find out our opponents - if we play our best against them, we'll go through and make a impact and if not, we'll go out - without making a impact - it's simple.
-Kilbane stating his team can get promoted at the first time of asking-
Great update, hopefully you'll get back up to the Premier League!
All the best with Wigan! :D
You'll be back up in the PL :D
