Vincenzo Montella: The Fiorentina manager will be without Ahmed Hegazy through i

The Tuscan club feared the 22-year-old Egypt international had aggravated an existing anterior cruciate ligament injury during his country's friendly victory over Uganda on August 14.

But a statement published on Fiorentina's official website ruled out significant damage to Hegazy's knee while confirming the centre-back will now be subjected to two weeks of controlled physiotherapy - ruling him out of Monday's game against Catania and a trip to Genoa on September 1.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).
