Skoko backs calmer Chris

Wigan Athletic midfielder Josip Skoko believes that current manager Chris Hutchings' calmer approach is more beneficial than former boss Paul Jewell's fiery temperament. The Latics have taken eight points from their first eight league games of the season and Skoko is enjoying life under a more relaxed regime. He commented: "Paul brought something of his own person to the team, as has Chris. "Chris is relaxed. He wants to bring football and confidence into the team, to get us playing and going into each game being positive. "Paul was a little more aggressive getting things out of us. He was always fired up and not in a bad way. It was just a different style he had. "Both ways work, it depends on the day I suppose, but I've always preferred a coach who is calm. "In my past experience the very good coaches have been very calm, they teach the football and we've got good results from it in the past."
