The newly appointed Latics manager is pleased with the setup at the DW Stadium and hopes to give a good account of the club when they enter the Europa League next season

Newly appointed Wigan manager Owen Coyle has heaped praise on the structure of the club, claiming that he knew immediately that it was the right job for him.

The 46-year-old was announced as the new Wigan manager on Friday by chairman Dave Whelan after Roberto Martinez left the recently relegated club to join Everton.

The former Bolton manager cannot wait to get started and hopes to give a good account of the club when they compete in next season's Europa League thanks to their FA Cup triumph.

The Scot told reporters: "I knew when I walked through the doors here that this was the job for me. It gave the impression of a terrific working environment.

"I have had seven or eight opportunities to get back into management but I've been waiting for the right club. I feel that this is the right job and I'm really looking forward to starting work at this fantastic club."

"In the Europa League we have to make an impression on people and show them what a brilliant club this is.

"The chairman has backed managers in the past to bring players and we need to add to an already talented squad. I'll look to utilise the loan market but we won't sacrifice quality for quantity; we have to bring the right players in."
