Fiorentina boosted by Jovetic recovery
Fiorentina believe Stevan Jovetic could be fit to face Atalanta this coming weekend as he is on course to recover from a muscle problem.
Jovetic - vital to the form which has seen Fiorentina transform last season's poor showing to currently sit fourth in Serie A - missed the trip to Milan after picking up the injury the week before, but the club's medical staff say he could recover in time for their next match.
Speaking to the side's official website, doctor Paolo Maetti said: "Jovetic is following the rehabilitation process very well. Today he underwent tests that confirmed the complete absorption of the bruising from the lesion of the muscle.
"It will take a few days to transition and we will make an evaluation on the Saturday before the game with Atalanta. He is on course to stay within the original prediction of 10-14 days out with this injury and is already in the conclusive phase of rehabilitation."
