Caldwell: Wigan committed to survival

Wigan captain Gary Caldwell has issued a statement to supporters outlining the players' commitment to staying in the Premier League after they were criticised for putting pictures of themselves sunbathing on Twitter.

The relegation-threatened team have gone to Tenerife for warm-weather training before Sunday's FA Cup tie against either Leicester City or Huddersfield.

But striker Franco di Santo put photos of them jumping into a swimming pool and relaxing in the sunshine on a social-networking site, leading captain Caldwell to clarify their behaviour.

He said in a statement on the club's official website: "Obviously, you need your downtime, but we realise that one or two pictures of players lying by the pool that appeared on Twitter may have come across as disrespectful to our supporters, and so we have decided ourselves as a group to take them down to avoid confusion.

"I can assure each and every one of our fans that the players are totally committed and focused on the fight to keep our club in the Premier League."

Scotland international Caldwell believes the break will help Wigan in their bid to stay in the Premier League.

He added: "We are training twice a day in the heat and the squad is really being put through its paces, more so than we probably could have done at home, judging by the temperatures back there.

"Some of the long-term injured boys have travelled with us too and there is a fantastic spirit of togetherness in the camp when we go away on trips like this, the sort of spirit that got us through last season and will help this one too. We've been on similar trips before to Oman and La Manga and it's always worked for us."
