Zaki - Wigan future can wait

21 February 2009 02:02
Amr Zaki insists scoring goals for Wigan is all that is concerning him at the moment.

The Egyptian striker set the Premier League alight in the first half of the season and led the scoring charts ahead of the likes of Ronaldo, Emmanuel Adebayor and Fernando Torres.

Speculation was rife in the build-up to the transfer window of the on-loan front man's future at the JJB Stadium, with Chelsea linked with the Zamalek man.

Latics boss Steve Bruce lost the services of Zaki's strike partner Emile Heskey, who left for Aston Villa during the window, but Bruce managed to keep the Egyptian international - at least until the end of the season.

But as the season approaches its latter stages, rumours have arisen once again about where the 25-year-old will ply his trade next term.

GoalBut Zaki, who has been backed by his manager to hit the goal trail after scoring just once in his last seven outings, claims his focus is purely on scoring the goals to cement Wigan's top-half position in the table.

"I am concentrating on scoring in the league at the moment," Zaki told

"I have not seen the back of the net - that is my concern - at the end of the season we will talk about transfers.

"I was supposed to leave in January and I am still at Wigan, where the manager trusts me.

"I like Wigan, let's talk in June."
