Wigan players happy for Whelan to lead them out for FA Cup final

Wigan Athletic players will be happy to be lead out at Wembley for the FA Cup final by chairman Dave Whelan.

Whelan can realise his dream of leading the team out, 53 years after he broke his leg playing in the final for Blackburn.

"The chairman was delighted with the result," said Shaun Maloney. "He's been pretty public about wanting to lead us out and now he gets his chance."
