Zaki deal has collapsed
The deal to bring Amr Zaki to the JJB according to reports has now collapsed after Zaki and the Chairman had an argument which resulted in the Bodyguards threatening to beat the striker up.
Now the deal seems to be off and this has had to be one of the longest sagas in the history of trying to sign a player from the point of view of the club.
The only positive that the fans can take from this is that maybe we can sign Salvador Cabanas because if anything, at least this would be a credible signing in light of what has happened with the Zaki signing and would be just as decent a prospect.
I'm sure that the club itself has reached the end of their tether with the Zamalek board, especially the chairman over the incident but the good news is we could get Cabanas and hopefully another striker who will be just as good as Zaki is.
In the end its a real shame for all concerned but at least the saga has come to a halt and Latics and their fans can finally move on from this disappointing revelation.
