(Wigan assistant boss) Eric Black: "For Mido the unfortunate thing is that in the past two or three years he's been stuck in a cycle of not playing regularly through injuries and that obviously affects your fitness.

"We've got a program in place for him now which he goes through during the week which he's happy with, and hopefully it will get him back to being the top footballer he is.

"It's a lot more intense the training he does so he'll have a full day with the fitness coach some days, and others spent with the rest of the team.

"He's working really hard to keep improving so you have to give him credit for that."
