Medical update on Pizarro, Rossi and Hegazy

Following medical examinations, David Pizarro has been diagnosed with acute lower back pain, fortunately not affecting the muscles or tendons. The midfielder will have physiotherapy for the next five days and then be reassessed.

Giuseppe Rossi has begun the next stage of his rehabilitation, which involves work on the field, after tests confirmed the stability of his knee.

Ahmed Hegazy, six and a half months after his own knee injury, is fit to resume full training and will return to the group on Monday.
