Following his move to Portman Road, the former Egyptian has set his sights on helping the Tractor Boys advance to the English second leg after promotion
Sam Morsy has expressed his desire to help promote Ipswich Town to the English Championship at the end of the 2021-22 season.
After completing a brief stint at Middlesbrough, the 29-year-old joined English League One after agreeing on a three-year contract for an undisclosed amount.
With this move, midfielder Sone Aluko (Nigeria), Macauley Bonne (Zimbabwe), Idris El Mizouni (Tunisia) and Toto Nsiala (Congo) join Paul Cook’s team.
In a chat with the club website, the former star of Wigan Athletic and Barnsley opened on his mission to Portman Road.
“The immediate goal is to be promoted, and that’s what I came to the club to do,” Morsy said.
‘You can not wear it; the goal is promotion, given the size of this club, the players and the manager.
‘I know the owners want to invest in the team and want us to be a force in the championship.
‘They’ve supported the manager and the manager has been promoted from this league before, so it’s exciting.
“There are a lot of good players here. With Kyle Edwards; my good friend Lee Peltier has nothing but good things to say about him and how good he is. It’s clear that the [Bersant] Celina’s signing is big, Conor Chaplin has scored many goals in the championship.
The Egyptian got the orders in the 81st minute of his last appearance for Boro when they drew 1-1 with Blackburn Rovers in the championship.
As a result, he will miss Town’s next three league games against Bolton Wanderers, Sheffield Wednesday and Lincoln City.
When asked about his favorite position, he said: “I play in midfield. I like to get the ball out of defense and start attacks.
“I break game. I try to control and dictate games.
‘I do not want to be banned, but it gives me time to stay here and sort out personal things, so when I play, I’m fully focused on the job.
“I have to adapt to Ipswich completely now and hopefully have a good season.”
