Fiorentina chief Mencucci: Hegazy is the REAL Pharaoh

Posted on November 19, 2012

 chief Sandro Mencucci has expressed his delight for following the Egyptian centre-back’s Viola debut.

Egypt centre-half Ahmed Hegazy made his long-awaited debut for Fiorentina in the 4-1 win over Atalanta on Sunday.

“I am happy for him (Hegazy) that he finally had his chance,” Fiorentina chief Mencucci told ViolaChannel.

“He is the REAL Pharaoh. I say ‘the real’, because he was born in Egypt and so he’s our Pharaoh. He’s very young and I am sure he will do well for us.”

Hegazy signed for the Viola on a 4-year-deal for €1.5 million from Ismaily in the summer.

The Viola now sit in third place on the Serie A table.
