Amr Zaki: Wigan weather helped me settle

Amr Zaki says he's settled quickly in the Premiership - thanks to the weather at Wigan!

A previous loan stint with Lokomotiv Moscow in 2006 turned into a nightmare for Zaki, 25, because of the freezing temperatures in the Russian capital.

The striker said: "I'm not very proud of the experience at Lokomotiv. I only stayed for three months and did not play a game because I suffered from homesickness and the terrible climate.

"But it is very different at Wigan. I knew what was waiting for me and I am getting all the support I need.

"The club are doing their best to make me feel comfortable and even helped bring my family to England to make me feel at home."
