Bayern Munich legend Franz Beckenbauer believes that Mario Gomez has made 'the right choice' in joining Fiorentina.
The Germany international's move from Bavaria to Tuscany was completed on Monday evening, with Vincenzo Montella's men set to pay around €20m for the goalscorer.
And the former defender believes that the 27-year-old will enjoy his football in Serie A.
“I think Gomez has made the right choice,” he told Sky Sports News. “At this time Bayern are overcrowded with attackers.
“And Guardiola prefers a more face-paced game with lots of movement, in which there's little room for a target-man.
“In any case, the Italian League is always fascinating.
“And in Florence, Gomez has chosen the perfect destination to play.”
