From the victory of the Federation Cup to near bankruptcy. Wigan’s ride over the past 10 years has been a roller coaster ride with no ups and downs. Now Sarbjot Johal (21 years old) will save them.
There are still some similarities between the current version of Wigan Athletic and the team that triumphed over stars like Sergio Agüero, Vincent Kompany and Yaya Toure in 2013.

It wasn’t just tiring on the field. Financially, it was a lot of chaos. In addition to finishing last in the championship, they start the next season in League One with eight minus points.
Unfortunately, the matter does not stop there: the reason for deducting points is that they did not pay the coaches and players on time, which they have not done yet, as the club needs new money to avoid bankruptcy.

according to the athlete The rescue could be a 21-year-old. Sarbjot Johal is a businessman from England, who has his own brand.
Johal had previously pumped money into the English club Morecambe, and he was reportedly ready to become the new owner of the club, but after the team was relegated to League Two, he was suspended.
Now it will be Wigan who will set their eyes on him.
