Amr Zaki has declared himself content with his debut season in the Premier League and vowed to return to the scoresheet soon.[LNB] The Egyptian was a revelation at the start of the term as he topped the goalscoring charts and impressed with a series of eye-catching displays.[LNB]Such were his performance levels a number of high-profile European heavyweights were linked with the 25-year-old, who is on-loan at the JJB Stadium until the end of the season.[LNB]However, such speculation coincided with a drop in form and while Zaki remains the top flight's fourth highest scorer, with 10 goals, he has not scored from open play since October.[LNB]Zaki is refusing to be downbeat though and told the Egyptian press, while away on international duty, that he is pleased with how the campaign has panned out.[LNB]"I haven't scored in the Premier League recently, but that doesn't necessarily mean I failed," he is quoted in the Wigan Evening Post. [LNB]"My supporters in Egypt need to be more patient. How come I failed when I trail high-profile stars Cristiano Ronaldo and Robinho only by one goal in the goalscorers' table?[LNB]"This is my first season in England and I reckon that I have done well. Some players might stay on the bench for six months or so until they make their Premier League debut.[LNB]"But I have taken part in 99 per cent of Wigan's games this term, and I have become their top scorer."[LNB]
