Fiorentina’s Italian-American striker Giuseppe Rossi has begun the preliminary steps to returning to the pitch, with the player now being fit to run for extended periods of time.
Rossi, who has been out since injuring the meniscus in his right knee in August, is taking the first steps in the final stages of his recovery. The Italian international is presently strengthening the injured knee, and will continue to make progress daily.
The ex-Manchester United youth product has been oft-injured throughout the course of his career, and it has hindered him from becoming a consistent striker.
According to Tuttomercatoweb.com, the Viola expect Rossi to return to game action in March, as their original timetable had foretold.
When healthy, Rossi has been one of Serie A’s most prolific strikers. Last season, he averaged a goal every 95 minutes in the league, netting 16 goals in 19 starts for the side from Florence.
