Wigan manager has supposed that the team captain will return to the Latics even a better player after his World Cup experience with Egypt.

Morsy was among the Egypt squad that made it to Russia for the 2018 World Cup for the first time since 1990, but the Pharaohs deluded their fans with three poor showings resulted into three defeats to hold the bottom of Group A.

The 26-year-old midfielder participated in Egypt’s opening game World Cup against Uruguay, replacing Tarek Hamed during the encounter, where lo Celeste managed to defeat Egypt with a last minute header through Jose Maria Gimenez.

“I spoke a couple of times with Sammy while he was over there, and it’s been great to see him out there on the biggest stage, against players like Luis Suarez,” Cook told Wigan Post.

“First and foremost it’s a great achievement for him on a personal level. And for him to be involved in something like this is huge, and that can only help him when he comes back to us.”

Cook stated that the Egypt international is a passionate football player that literally lives for the game.

“If ever a player lives his life to be a footballer it’s Sammy Morsy. He lives and breathes football, wants everything to be done properly, and he’s an example to the rest of the club. He’ll have to give his body a break, like every player has to, and we’ll manage that correctly.”

“But Sammy will be there come the first day of the season, don’t you worry about that!”
