With the war of words well under way between Wigan Athletic and Zamalek over the future of the sensational Amr Zaki the player himself has had a say in where he wants to go in the future.

Zaki says that he loves being at Wigan and wants to stay, no matter who comes in for him, he says that he wants to repay Latics boss Steve Bruce for the determination shown in battling for 6 months to get his signature

Zaki told reporters:

‘If any other club came in for me I would still want to stay at Wigan. I feel at home here.

‘Yes, even Manchester United, even though Steve Bruce used to play there.

‘I cannot believe the determination of Steve Bruce. He spent six months trying to sign me.


‘Now I want to show him that I am worth all his efforts. Zamalek didn’t want me to go, I begged them because I wanted to play in England.

‘Every match is a new challenge for me – it does not matter what I did in the last one.

‘It’s an honour to be playing against all these good defenders, who are stars at their own club. This is the strongest league in the world.

‘I would like you to please thank all the team, who include me in everything even if I can’t tell sometimes what they are saying to me, and especially the fans, because they have sent me a lot of love.

‘A centre-forward has no limits on how many goals he can score. I want to score every match.’


With the Zamalek chairman seemingly reluctant to talk about Zaki being allowed a permanent switch to the Latics its good to hear the player speak so positively about our club
