Wigan skipper Caldwell delighted for goal scorer Kone

Wigan Athletic captain Gary Caldwell was delighted for Arouna Kone after his goal in victory at Southampton.

Kone, 28, marked his full debut with a goal at Southampton 24 hours after Wigan lost Moses to Chelsea.

Asked about the peroxide blonde striker who wears the unconventional No 2, Caldwell said: “He is going to be a character and that’s good. We need people like that at the club. Big personalities to take us forward and build on the momentum we had last year.

“Arouna has scored a lot of goals throughout his career.

“He’s had a few bad injuries that have cost him bigger moves and more playing time.

“But we are glad to have him and hopefully that goal will give him confidence.”
