Caldwell: Sam Morsy has nothing to prove
Wigan’s manager Gary Caldwell asserted that Egypt-eligible Sam Morsy has nothing to prove as the former Chesterfield midfielder returns from suspension.
Sam Morsy missed Wigan’s last game against Peterborough, which ended in a 1-1 draw, after receiving two yellow cards against Millwall on March 2.
“Sam has nothing to prove, apart from to himself,” Wigan’s manager Gary Caldwell told the Evening Post.
”He’s a quality player who’s made a big impression since he arrived in January.”
The 24-year-old joined the Latics from Chesterfield last January for a fee reported to be around £250,000.
“He’s made that position in front of the back four his own. Him being there allows David Perkins and Max Power to push further forward, and ask questions of the opposition’s defence,” The former Celtic defender added.
“We missed him at the weekend, we were forced to change the formation, and it took us a while to get going. But he’ll be desperate to get back in there this weekend for another big game.”
Wigan Athletic are currently second in the English League One with 64 points from 35 games. Their next game will be against Colchester on Saturday March 12.
