Antoine Sibierski believes Titus Bramble is receiving more positive treatment at Wigan Athletic than he received with Newcastle United.

Sibierski explained: "At Newcastle, Titus played in front of 52,000 fans and it is different here.

"Maybe he has got less pressure. Titus looks a different player. I have told him he could play for England - he has done very, very well in the last few games.

"I am not surprised about that because I saw him at Newcastle in training and he is a quality player.

"But he was not the same during games. Now he is doing very well and I would not be surprised if he got into the England squad.

"He is the same guy but on the pitch he looks more confident. I want him to carry on in this way.

"Maybe it is the way he is being coached. Maybe he has got more confidence from the staff at Wigan than he got at Newcastle."
