Wigan skipper Gary Caldwell says the players are working hard in Tenerife and has apologised for the pictures posted on Twitter.
Latics have jetted off to the sun for some warm-weather training before they return to England to continue the fight for Premier League survival and it is a tactic that has worked well in the past.
The players are putting in some tough sessions and are training twice a day but Caldwell admits it was bad move to post pictures of the players relaxing around the pool.
The photos angered some fans but Caldwell has moved quickly to assure them that everyone is working hard to make sure the club stay up.
"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," he revealed.
"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 Barclay's Premier League.
"The fans have been different class all season, as they have been since I came to Wigan. We are all fighting together, fans and players, for the good of our club and I'm sure we will continue sticking together in the crucial weeks and months ahead."
