'If It's Football, It's Vital'

FIFA's number 1 is a Latic

Wigan Athletic new striker Amr Zaki is ranked number 1 forward in the world by FIFAs ranking system

The Egypt international has a fantastic scoring rate for his country and Latics boss Steve Bruce is hoping he can bring this to the Premier League.

Bruce says:

'According to FIFA statistics, Zaki is rated No 1 in the world'

'He's scored better than one in two for his country and Egypt won the Africa Cup of Nations. He's a big star out there, I hope he can be for us.'

Its taken a while for us to get him heres hoping its been worth the chase

Welcome to Wigan Amr

Great signing for you lot. Great strength and energy!

Amr Zaki 1.5 for one-year loan. Moteb purchased for about the same for 3 years. Amr a great player and can get over ten goals in the EPL even in his first year. However, why dose B City get a player that has about the same scoring record and only slightly less talented than Zaki for what looks like 3 times less money and about 90 times less effort. Will have to wait and see how it all goes but im sure, both players will do a lot this year. Cannot wait to see Mido, Shawky Zaki, Metob, and Ghaly in England this year. About the Lee Cattermole...U can get Ghaly for less and he is without a doubt a more versatile, proven and experienced player at this stage, and will help Zaki with living in UK.

I'm pretty sure Fifa don't have a ranking system for players - I think this one might be a little tongue-in-cheek from Brucie. Can't complain about the signing though - top deal.
