Callum Henry McManaman (born 25 April 1991) is an English footballer who plays for Wigan Athletic as a forward. Born in Huyton, Merseyside, highly rated McManaman began his youth career at Everton before being released in 2007 and joining Wigan Athletic. He made his first team debut in 2009, and won the FA Cup with the club in 2013. He also represented England at the 2011 U-20 World Cup.

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

McManaman was born on 25 April 1991 in Huyton. He grew up as an Everton supporter,[4] and joined the club's youth system when he was seven years old. After being released by the club at the age of sixteen, he signed for Wigan Athletic on a free transfer in 2007. He made his debut for the reserves toward the end of the 2007–08 season.[5] He became a regular in the reserve team during the second half of the following season, appearing ten times and scoring four goals.[6] He then made his first team debut on 24 May 2009 in a Premier League match against Portsmouth, becoming Wigan's youngest-ever player to play in the Premier League.[7] In July 2009, he signed his first professional contract with the club.[8] McManaman remained in the reserve team during the 2009–10 season, scoring twice in a 5–0 win against Burnley.[9] Although he did not appear in the first team, he earned a contract extension.[10]

McManaman was an unused substitute in the first team at the start of the 2010–11 season, but Wigan manager Roberto Martínez felt the player was not yet ready for Premier League football.[11] On 30 November 2010, he made his first appearance in over 18 months when he came on as a substitute in a League Cup match against Arsenal. Martínez suggested the player would feature more regularly later in the season.[12] He scored his first goal for Wigan in his first start for the club against Hull City in the FA Cup on 8 January 2011.[13] In April 2011, he extended his contract for a further two years, keeping him at the club until 2013.[14]

Blackpool[edit]

On 17 October 2011 McManaman joined Blackpool in a three-month loan deal.[15] He made his debut a day later, appearing as a substitute against Doncaster Rovers,[4] and made his first start for the club in the following game against Nottingham Forest.[16] On 3 December 2011, he scored his first league goal in a 1–0 win against Reading.[17]

Return to Wigan Athletic[edit]

After he returned from his loan spell at Blackpool, McManaman scored against Swindon Town in the FA Cup on 7 January 2012.[18] He returned to Premier League football at the DW Stadium on 16 January 2012 as an 81st-minute substitute in a single-goal defeat to Manchester City.[19]

McManaman scored as a substitute in the 89th minute in Wigan's first League Cup game of the 2012–13 season, capping off a 1–4 win over Nottingham Forest.[20] In January 2013, he signed a new contract with Wigan until 2016.[21] On 17 February 2013, in the fifth round of the FA Cup, McManaman scored one goal and was named man-of-the-match in a 4–1 win against Huddersfield Town, helping Wigan reach the quarter-finals for the first time in 26 years.[22] In that quarter-final match, he scored against his former club Everton, at Goodison Park, in a 3–0 win that sent Wigan to the semi-finals at Wembley.[23]

After the Everton game, McManaman made his first Premier League start against Newcastle United on 17 March 2013.[24] His challenge on Massadio Haïdara in that game[25][26][27] was the subject of a two-day review by The Football Association;[28] the Association concluded it lacked the authority to penalise McManaman retrospectively.[28][29] On 23 March 2013, The Daily Telegraph reported that the McManaman situation had prompted the FA "... to raise the issue with the other 'stakeholders' involved in setting disciplinary guidelines ... at the end of the season."[30]

On 27 April, he scored his first Premier League goal for Wigan in a 2–2 draw against Tottenham Hotspur.[31] A week later, he scored the winning goal in a 3–2 win against West Bromwich Albion.[32] On 11 May, he was named man-of-the-match in the FA Cup Final, leading Wigan to a 1–0 victory over Manchester City.[33]

International career[edit]

In June 2011, McManaman, along with team mate Lee Nicholls, was included in the England under-20's squad for the 2011 FIFA U-20 World Cup,[34] the first time a Wigan Athletic player has been involved in the tournament.[35] He made his debut in the country's first group match – a 0–0 draw against North Korea,[36] and went on to play in all of England's games during the tournament before the team were knocked out by Nigeria.

On 14 May, he was called up for the first time to the England Under 21s for the 2013 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship in Israel.[37] However, he was ruled out of the tournament due to an ankle injury picked up in a game against Arsenal on the same day.[38]

Personal life[edit]

McManaman is a distant relative of former Liverpool, Real Madrid, Manchester City and England player Steve McManaman,[39] who also grew up on Merseyside supporting Everton.
