Wigan’s McManaman Has Past Form

9 years ago

Interesting to read about an incident just over two years ago when Callum McManaman was playing against Wigan reserves against Manchester City.

These are extract from a match report at the time on MCFCReserves website, see if you can spot anything familiar…

‘Gai Assulin was stretchered off in injury time with his right leg in a brace, following a wild challenge by Callum McManaman, which caused some friction between the two benches.’

‘Just as the clock ticked into the 90th minute, Gai Assulin picked the ball up just inside Wigan’s half and Callum McManaman ran from City’s half and dived in very late and caught Gai on his right leg with the studs showing.”

I can see what Roberto Martinez and his boss mean now about what a canny lad he is, wouldn’t hurt a fly, salt of the earth etc etc
