Hegazy called up as Fiorentina begin Serie A campaign against Roma
Fiorentina defender Ahmed Hegazy has entered the Viola’s squad taking on Italian giants AS Roma in their Serie A opener on Saturday night at the Stadio Olimpico.
The Egyptian international was sidelined for most of last season due to a tear in his ACL, but since returning from injury he participated regularly in Fiorentina’s pre-season.
The 23-year-old defender aims to get a starting spot in Fiorentina’s XI and is willing to convince the Viola coach Vicenzo Montella this season, who by his turn gave Hegazy playing time in most of the team’s pre-season games against the likes of Real Madrid and Real Betis.
The full Fiorentina squad for the Roma trip: Alonso, Aquilani, Babacar, Basanta, Bernardeschi, Shiny, Gomez, Gonzalo, Hegazy, Ilicic, Joaquin, Lazzari, Lupatelli, Neto, Pasqual, Pizarro, Savic, Tatarusanu, Tomovic, Valero, Vargas.
