Wigan Athletic have handed new signing Mido the number 9 shirt vacated by Emile Heskey following his move to Aston Villa this week and he looks set to make his debut on Wednesday in the game against Liverpool at the JJB

Mido is really looking forward to the game and he is hoping that he can make a goalscoring debut against the over achieving Liverpool team who have flattered to deceive this season where as the Latics are on the crest of a wave and have been unlucky in defeat in the last two games, Mido told reporters:


‘It would be fantastic if I could score on Wednesday, everyone wants to score on their debut but the most important thing is for the team to do well and hopefully get a good result against Liverpool and pick up some more league points.


‘I am really looking forward to teaming up with Zaki, who is a top striker and I can tell you if you think he has been good so far, I think he can get even better.’


‘This is a great time to be joining the club. They are playing so well and having talked to a few of the boys this morning I can see how strong the self belief is in the dressing room.’
