In an interview with a French magazine, Wigan midfielder Mohamed Diame didn’t hold back in letting all-and-sundry know what he thinks about his current place of residence:

“The truth about life in Wigan is there is nothing to do. It is a crappy place.

“The town is tiny and there is no atmosphere. I go into training, I return home, and that is all I do.

“When it snowed I felt like it was minus 15, and feared I was going to turn into an ice cube.”

Diame then got started on the indigenous wildlife:

“It is rare to see truly beautiful girls when you go out during the day, but it’s a different story when you go out in the evening. The girls seem to cover themselves up all day, only to be in good-looking mode at night.

“In Madrid (Diame joined the Latics from Rayo Vallecano) I had the impression that all the women were beautiful.”

Get him on the tourist board pronto! That’s the nicest thing anyone’s ever said about Wigan.
