Wigan Athletic and Egypt front man Amr Zaki is aiming to be available for selection in the Latics Lancashire derby game with Blackburn Rovers on Sunday 26th April.
The 26 year old striker was injured whilst playing for Egypt in their world cup qualifier against Zambia and only returned to the UK two days ago causing his club manager Steve Bruce to go ballistic
Bruce and Zaki met yesterday for showdown talks and what was expected to be an explosive meeting ended up being something of slap on the wrist, speaking exclusively to Vital Wigan Zaki said:
"I met with Bruce and everything now is fine, my team mates welcomed me back this morning"
"I will attend the game against Arsenal from JJB to support my team"
"I will make 3 individual sessions everyday to regain my form and I think I will be fit to face Rovers on April 26"
Latics Speyk Podcast 8 - The Arsenal Preview
Vital Latics are pleased to announce that the latest podcast 'The Arsenal Preview` is now available for downloading and as usual features conversation and music.
This episode looks forward to the Arsenal game this weekend and features an interview with life long Gooner Tim Stillman of Vital Arsenal fame, now Tim will be travelling up to the JJB this weekend for the big game and he sounds a little nervous as to what the result might be.
Also on this episode the Latics Speyk studio hit the road and met with far away Latics fan Kent who hails from Norway, we met up with Kent in a town centre bar and fired 10 quick questions at him then just had a general chat about the Latics, Norway, Paul Scharner and Denmark
Now to say that the Norwegians and Danes don`t get along is an understatement and Kent`s description of Denmark is very funny and not to be missed (about 18 mins in)
The music featured on this episode has a distinctive soul flavour, now Tim told me that he is a big soul man and he has in his CD collection down in South East London quite a few soul albums and he says he is a big Northern Soul fan, so Al Wilson, Tony Clarke, Marvin Gaye all feature and we end with a wonderful track by The Tams called 'There Aint Nothing Like Shagging`, no there aint.
I hope you enjoy and if you wish to feature on any future podcasts please get in touch here on Vital Wigan, till the next time, keep on truckin`
