Sam Morsy: Wigan’s ambition suits me
Newly signed Wigan Athletic midfielder Sam Morsy expressed his happiness with his move and outlined his ambitions and future goals as a Latics player when he spoke to the club’s channel LaticsPlayer HD.
The UK-born and Egypt-eligible player moved to DW Stadium from Chesterfield FC earlier this week on a two-and-a-half year contract for a £250,000 fee.
The 24-year-old, who will be wearing the number eight jersey, emphasized the role of Wigan’s manager Gary Caldwell in bringing him to the club.

“I have spoken to the gaffer and he has outlined the club’s ambition and how he wants me to be a part of that,” remarked Morsy. “There was initial interest for me from Wigan and the gaffer has really pushed the move through, I really appreciate that.”
Morsy also expressed his gratitude for joining a club as big as Wigan and believes he will have no major issues adapting to their style of football.
“I am delighted for the move to go through; it is a fantastic club with a lot of ambition and I am pleased to be here,” he said.
“The style of play suits me perfectly; I could see when we played against Wigan that the system and style suits me down to the ground,” he explained, and then continued, “Immediately, my ambition is to get into the team and to get promoted this season.”
The ex-Port Vale midfielder is looking forward to playing in a Wigan jersey, under his new manager, and in front of the Wigan fans.
“I would love to make my debut against a former club in Port Vale, I’ve played against them a couple of times this season and they are doing very well so it will be a tough game,” he said.
“I am incredibly excited to play in front of the Wigan fans. You can tell that the fans here really sense that something special can happen this season.”
When asked about his former club Chesterfield, Sam Morsy had nothing but praise and gratitude toward the club.
“Two-and-a-half years in football feels like a lifetime and this was a great opportunity for me to move on with great memories from my time with the club in part of a very successful period in their history,” he said.
Wigan, who sit in fourth place with 49 points, will host Port Vale, who sit in 10th place with 40 points, this Saturday, January 30 in gameweek 29 of League One.
