Tackle wasn't reckless - Whelan
- From the section Football
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.
