Wigan chairman Whelan: Meulensteen rumours premature

Wigan Athletic chairman Dave Whelan has played down replacing Everton bound Roberto Martinez with Rene Meulensteen.

Manchester United coach Meulensteen is being linked with the DW post.

But Whelan revealed that he is yet to speak to any candidates, let alone interview them, and labelled reports linking Meulensteen with the job as "premature".

"We've had lots of people who have applied, but I haven't been able to interview anyone else yet," Whelan said. "I have written the names and numbers on a list ready to speak to those who have applied and we're waiting to get on with that."
