Chimbonda 'panic' led to request

Chimbonda 'panic' led to request:

"Chimbonda handed his transfer request to Jewell as soon as he walked into the Wigan changing room after their 4-2 defeat by Arsenal, according to Wigan's head of communications, Matt McCann.
'He unzipped his bag, took the note out and handed it to the manager - he hadn't even taken his boots off,' McCann said.
'The other players couldn't fail to notice what was going on and some of the senior pros were very angry. In fact they still are.' "

Good for Wigan for standing up to player and, more importantly, agent greed.
