Bruce Puts the Record Straight on Zaki

Bruce Puts the Record Straight on Zaki



Wigan Athletic boss Steve Bruce spoke about the current situation regarding Amr Zaki, Zamalek and all the speculation, he told reporters:

'I want to put the record straight because, at the minute, everyone wants a piece of the fellow. The truth of the matter is he is on loan with us until June. That's a fact.

"Over the next few weeks, or however long it takes, we will try and open negotiations with Zamalek and do everything in our power to try and make sure he stays here.

'Zamalek were hoping, and that's why they took the deal, that he would do well, obviously the better he does the bigger the transfer fee. But he's our player, so we're in the driving seat. We haven't got first refusal on anything. But we have got to see if we can agree a transfer fee with Zamalek.'


Bruce regrets not signing Zaki on a permanent deal back in July but will try and make sure that we get him now, he continued:

'Of course, with hindsight, it would have been nice for him to have been ours, but we have still got a chance - that is the most important thing - and we will do our utmost. I know the chairman thinks the world of him, so we will try to strike a deal.'

So long as Amr Zaki keeps kissing that Latics top we have a chance

Latics v Brentford - Big Game Preview

Latics go into the game against Brentford hoping to build on the win away at Burton last Saturday, another three points this afternoon could see us lifted out of the bottom three come 5pm, what a change around that would be from the despair that we were all feeling as we came in to the new year.

The truth of the matter is that the team is too good to be stuck where it is in the league, we have enough quality in the ranks to be higher up the table, hopefully the last two games have shown t
