Egypt and Konyaspor defender Abdul-Zaher Al-Saqqa said 'the evil eye' was the reason behind his knee injury, sidelining him for 10 days so far.

"It seems that the evil eye injured me after winning the African Cup of Nations with Egypt," Al-Saqqa told on Monday.

"Once I returned to Turkey I picked up a knee injury and I will be out for two more weeks before returning to domestic action with Konya."

Al-Saqqa played all Egypt's six games towards the African title in February and was one of the most prominent figures in the winning squad.

Al-Saqqa said it wasn't only him that was hit by a bad injury after the tournament but Egypt teammate and Ahli winger Mohamed Barakat also picked-up a similar injury.

Konyaspor are placed 10th in the Turkish standings with 29 points, moving several spots down since Al-Saqqa left for the African Cup in January.
