Twitter Reacts As Dave Whelan Leaves Wigan Athletic And Appoints 23-Year-Old Grandson As His Successor

Dave Whelan has resigned from his position as Wigan chairman, a post he has held for 20 years.

The 78-year-old announced his decision on Tuesday morning and while he will remain the owner of the Championship struggler’s, his 23-year-old Grandson, David Sharpe will take over the running of the club.

So, what does the future hold for the Latics?

Will Sharpe bring a youthful tenacity to the table and push Wigan back to the bright lights of the Premier League?

Or will his inexperience and expected naivety toward the game count against him?

If anyone knows then it’s the ramblings of Twitter users everywhere:
