Fiorentina fans will be relieved to hear that their marquee signing Mario Gomez has resumed training. Gomez arrived this summer for an undisclosed fee, believed to be in the region of €20 million.
The German has only managed to muster up 3 appearances so far, scoring in 2 of them before a knee injury suffered in the 1-1 draw against Cagliari in September put him on the sidelines for over two months.
Vincenzo Montella believes that Gomez can be fit in time to face Roma at the beginning of December. Fiorentina are considered outsiders in the race for the Scudetto but thanks to some great performances against the likes of Juventus and the resurgence of Giusseppe Rossi they are still in the mix.
A top 3 finish is probably more realistic and the return of 28 year old Gomez can only help.
