Former Ivory Coast international joins from Leicester City, where he was operating as First Team Coach
Malachy Brannigan: "We are delighted that Kolo has become the new manager of Wigan Athletic Football Club, and the Board are pleased that he believes in the vision of the Club and wants to be the man to take us forward."
“We received a high calibre of applicants for the manager’s job in recent weeks, in a very thorough recruitment process as we looked to appoint the right person for the role.
“From the earliest of conversations we had with Kolo, it was evident to us that he had instantly bought into the values of the Club – with his enthusiasm, knowledge and immense desire to work and be part of Wigan Athletic shining throughout the process.
Touré arrives at the Club on a three and a half-year deal from Leicester City, where he was operating as First Team Coach as part of Brendan Rodgers' coaching staff.
Kevin Betsy and Ashvir Johal will also join Wigan as part of the Ivorian’s backroom team, with Rob Kelly staying on as assistant manager.
