All Mido is Saying, is Give Zaki a Chance

All Mido is Saying, is Give Zaki a Chance


Wigan Athletic and Egypt striker Mido is asking the Latics fans to give his team-mate at both club and country, Amr Zaki, another chance

Mido say that Zaki is having a bit of a culture shock at the moment and that systems at clubs operate very differently here in England than what they do back in Egypt, Mido says that Zaki is a 'very good man` and that he is `a good boy with a big heart` he just needs to get used to the way things are done.

Mido told reporters:

'I spoke to the lads with Zaki when he came back, he apologised to the team and they accepted it.

'What people don't know is that Zaki is a great lad, a very good man. He just doesn't know how the system works here, it will take him time to know that.

'Zaki is someone I've known years, he's a good boy with a big heart. It's his job now to show he wants to do even better for us.

'We really need him, he is a strong lad who has scored a lot of goals for the club, we need him to finish the season well.

'I hope he stays at Wigan next season, I don't want people to 'kill' him.

'I understand where the gaffer was coming from when he went to the media about Zaki because it was the fourth time he'd been late. But my message is please don't kill the lad.

'In Egypt it's a totally different system, so he has to get used to how things are done over here.

'I want it to happen for him here, I want to help him because I have more experience in the Premier League and with English people. I know what the mentality is.'


Zaki certainly does need to learn the system over here, the story that broke yesterday about him being in a Manchester night club till 2 am on Saturday is a prime example, in fairness he has every right to be out, he wasn`t playing the following day and his private life should be just that, but with the trouble of the last few weeks it would have been advisable for him to have kept his head down and got an early night.

Ok ..Mido is a great talent no question about tht but he has been far from his regular best for atleat 2 seasons since his spell with spurs Mido has never been the same and it will take him a mighty challenge to get to his regular best ..Zaki is all round different to Mido, Zaki is a world class striker who is the leading top scorer for Egyptian national team the African Champions over the past 3 years and his form and strnght r 2nd to none the problem is tht no one knew him in England until he joined Wigan yet whtever Zaki has produced with Wigan is nothing compared to his actual potential but no one knows tht and people r starting to doubt his ability coz he hasnt scored since last christmas but im sure he'l b back with a vengance v soon coz he loves to b under pressure just like most egyptian players do!!
