Paul Cook leaves Pompey

After nearly a week of speculation, Paul Cook has stepped down as Pompey boss to take up the vacant managerial position at Wigan Athletic.

The clubs official statement reads:

"A financial compensation agreement was reached with Wigan over the weekend, resulting in permission being granted for the Latics to speak to Paul.

Assistant manager Leam Richardson has also left Fratton Park.

Cook arrived at Pompey in May 2015 and led the club to the League Two play-offs in his first season in charge.

There was even more success at the end of last term, with the Blues earning automatic promotion and securing the title on a dramatic final day.

Portsmouth Football Club would like to thank Cook and Richardson for their service to the club."

 

Niall McCaughan hosted a Football Hour on Tuesday 30th June to discuss the matter.
