Wigan Athletic manager Paul Jewell has begun building his squad for next season by releasing experienced duo Stephane Henchoz and David Thompson.Paul Jewell explained:
"Thommo is a good little player, but he has found it difficult, in particular as he has had a couple of niggly injuries.There goes my hope for next year of seeing Thompson with a unique treble for Wigan on the opening day of next season... score, booking, and substituted for injury. Guess there's still a chance that he can do it for another club.
"But he is very unlucky because you could see what he's capable of at Arsenal.
"So it was a tough decision, but I've just thought for next season we will try something different.
