When I heard the news today that Zaki wouldn't be signing until after the weekend's game agaisnt Ahly next Sunday, the first thing I did was check the calender in case it was January and not July.
The reason? this deal is rapidly turning into a pantomine farce.There have been more twists and turns than a downhill slalom and still it hasn't come to fruition.
There are already calls for the deal to be scrapped with the view that Zamelek are messing WIgan about in the hope that we will give up attempting to sign what appears to be their best player.
Whilst I can sympathise with these calls, I believe that it is important that we exercise a little more patience in the hope that he will actually sign next week.
Amr Zaki is evidently a class forward with a good goal scoring record , something that we are sadly lacking. We are struggling to attract forwards to the club at present and of the four that we currently have, three are strongly linked with a move away. Zaki actually wants to play for us and there is nothing to stop us looking elswhere whilst still pursuing Amr.
This is another blow but not the end of the world. We have been patient for two and a half months surely another weeks wait won't hurt.
