Wigan Athletic have parted ways with manager Leam Richardson following a disappointing run of defeats in the EFL Championship.

The Latics started the season well on their return to second-tier football, picking up a host of positive results and establishing themselves as hard-to-beat, efficient operators.

Results quickly tailed off though, and a failure to add considerable Championship-level talent to the squad has left Wigan in a precarious position heading into the World Cup break.

With the board's quest for a new head coach already underway, RealSport101's Harry Smith is on hand to give you the latest odds to replace Leam Richardson as Wigan manager.

Leam Richardson's Wigan departure: As it happened

Leam Richardson first moved to Wigan back in 2017 as part of Paul Cook's backroom staff, but it wouldn't be until August 2020 that he would take charge of first-team duties after Wigan were plunged into administration.

He was appointed permanently as Wigan boss in April 2021 and successfully kept the Latics in League One, before masterminding a promotion-winning campaign.

The start of the 2022/23 EFL Championship season initially showed promise for Wigan and Richardson, but fast forward to GW20 and the Latics have taken just one point from their last seven league outings and sit 23rd in the table.
