Pogrebnyak suffers bad Stuttgart start

MOSCOW - Pavel Pogrebnyak's move to VfB Stuttgart got off on the wrong foot after he missed his flight and lost his luggage, Russian media reported on Tuesday. The Russia striker, who joined the Bundesliga club on a three-year contract from Zenit St Petersburg last week, was late for his presentation in Stuttgart after missing a connecting flight in Frankfurt. "The Frankfurt airport is so big I simply got lost there and missed my flight to Stuttgart. To make matters worse, I also lost my suitcase there," the 25-year-old was quoted as saying by local media.
