Head coach Adrian Lam has confirmed that he will “sort out my future” with Wigan Warriors by the end of next week. The 48-year-old Papua New Guinean’s future at the DW Stadium has been called into question at times over the course of the Super League season as the reigning Grand Final winners have struggled to emulate their 2018 success achieved under former boss Shaun Wane.
Wigan were struggling at the wrong end of the table earlier in the campaign and looked like being drawn into a relegation scrap. However, Lam appears to have steadied the ship with three consecutive wins moving them up to sixth position ahead of Friday’s home clash against Salford.
A win against the Red Devils could see the Warriors jump up to fourth and Lam has revealed that he will then hold talks with the club over his own future. He told Wigan Today: “I’ll sort out my future in the next 10 days or so. I need to sit down with them, now this period is over.
“We went through Easter and I was going to speak to the club then but I didn’t feel we were in a good position to talk until we were back on track. “I’ve spoken to my manager and said we need to meet in some way and hopefully that’ll happen soon.”
