CAIRO: Amr Zaki is keeping his options open for the new season by not ruling out a return to Zamalek.

The Egyptian striker, who is currently nursing a knee injury, is set to finish a season-long at Wigan Athletic from the Cairo club.

I will make a decision on my future in six weeks time. I might stay in the Premier League, who knows, the 26-year-old told

I am a good professional and I like it at Wigan, but we did not agree on certain things, that is life.

We will regroup – my agent, my club and myself – and we will make a decision soon. Going back to Zamalek is also an option.

Despite a dazzling start in England, Zaki ended the season on a low note after falling out with Latics boss Steve Bruce. Consequently, the latter opted not to extend the Egyptian s contract.

Until the end of 2008, the powerful forward was tipped for the likes of Liverpool and Real Madrid, but his off-field antics, in addition to lack of goals this year marred his overall input.

Zaki, who still has a contract with Zamalek, claimed recently that four Premiership clubs have shown interest in his services.
