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

Zaki Loving Wigan

Wigan Athletic and Egypt striker Amr Zaki may have missed the World Cup qualifier for his country this weekend due to injury but he certainly hit the mark when he was interviewed by FIFA.com

Zaki spent an unsuccessful time in Russia two years ago and blamed homesickness has part of the problem for failing to settle obviously FIFA.com asked if he would have the same problems now he is at the Latics, he said:

It is very different this time: I am now at the place I dreamt of being since I was a kid. I knew what was waiting for me and I am getting all the support I need. The club are doing their best to make me feel comfortable, and they even helped me bring my family to England to make me feel at home. I cannot even begin to describe how grateful I am to the Wigan fans, who have been just fantastic.

Zaki was asked if it was easy fitting into a 'small` side such as Wigan, he replied:

Wigan may be a small city but they are definitely not a small team. We play some of the best football in the league and we have superstar players like (Emile) Heskey and (Antonio) Valencia. Even in the games we lost this season, we were the better side but were just unlucky.

FIFA.com also tried to trick Zaki with a question about the possibility of moving to a top four club, he retorted:

All my efforts now are focused towards helping Wigan win matches and scoring goals for them. This is the least I can do for the team and for my manager Steve Bruce, who insisted on signing me after one of he longest transfers negotiations in modern football. He always believed in me, and now it is my turn now to pay him back and meet the expectations of the Wigan fans.

Nice one Amr, nice one


Zaki - so happy to be a Latics
