Stephane Henchoz has talked about his Liverpool nightmare and revealed he was left feeling ‘useless’.

Henchoz, who moved from Blackburn to Scouse Land said: ‘I thought about ending my career, I felt useless. I wondered whether it was worth making the effort to come back. But now I’m a first-team regular at Wigan, we are fourth in the table and I feel stronger than I’ve ever been. I had never had the brakes slammed on my career as sharply as last season.’

Explaining it is hard work that has brought the results for Wigan:

‘The reason Wigan have begun the season so well is that we work very hard. All 11 of us defend when we lose possession. And that’s not always the case at more high-class clubs.’
