Wigan chairman Dave Whelan - McManaman's tackle wasn't reckless

Wigan Athletic chairman Dave Whelan says that Callum McManaman's tackle on Newcastle United's Massimo Haidara, which left the defender with suspected knee ligament damage, was not a reckless one.

Whelan says he hopes Haidara makes a speedy recovery but does not believe his club owes Newcastle United an apology.

The incident took place during Wigan's 2-1 victory over Newcastle on Sunday.
