Wigan are finally reaping the rewards for their unexpected success this season as only modern football knows how, by having their best players poached!
According to Skysports, Bayern Munich are supposedly interested in right back Pascal Chimbonda after watching him live against Arsenal over the weekend. The Frenchman has been in fine form, scoring goals and playing his part in one of the Premiership’s best defenses this season.
After earning himself a new contract and attracting praise from pundits and teamates alike, it seems like Wigan could be the latest victims of this new age of money-driven football – seeing their best players taken away from them, scuppering any long term ambitions.
His agent, Willie McKay, was typically diplomatic,
“I am well aware of the interest from Bayern Munich in Pascal,” McKay told skysports.com.
“They had representatives watching him in action against Arsenal at the weekend.
“Bayern contacted my business partner Roger Boli and asked about the availability of Pascal.
“However, I doubt Wigan or Paul Jewell would even entertain a bid for Pascal after the way he has played.”
