Man-of-the-Match Morsy comments on Wigan win vs Walsall
Sam Morsy who joined Wigan Athletic last January, shares his thoughts as Latics fans vote him Man-of-the-Match against Walsall.
Morsy is adapting well to the life at Wigan Athletic since joining the club in the winter transfer window, as the 24-year-old Egypt-eligible midfielder has been producing great performances, which saw him awarded the man-of-the-match award against Walsall.
Following their 2-1 win over Walsall, Sam Morsy expressed this happiness with award praising his team mates for playing a huge role.
“It’s fantastic to be chosen as the Man-of-the-Match by the fans,” said Morsy.
“The Gaffer wants everybody doing their job, and he’s massive on the cohesion of the team.
“If everybody do their job right and to the high standard we set for ourselves, then we’ve always a good chance of winning,” Morsy continued
Morsy then commented on his life after moving from Chesterfield to Wigan Athletic and how he is adapting with his new team.
“Things have started really well for me here, we’ve had two big away wins in a row and I’ve started them both just in front of the defense.
“The gaffer is tactically very good, and we do a lot of work to nullify the oppositions’ threats as well our own work in going out to win games,” Morsy expressed.
“We’re on a really good run at the minute and I’m enjoying my role in the team.
The former Chesterfield captain insisted that their game against Walsall was a must win game, and it is important to get points out of your rivals in order to push the team forward to upper positions. The win against Walsall has lifted the team into the second place in the table.
“Walsall was a great win for us, a must win game if you think about it, so to get the three points is a great result for us.
“It’s always important not to drop too many points to your rivals, so it was a big win for us because we are still playing catch up a little bit.
“It keeps the momentum going, of course it’s only three points from a lot left to play for, but it keeps us unbeaten and sends us into Saturday’s game full of confidence,” Sam concluded.
