Giuseppe Rossi’s injury fears have been calmed, despite the Italy international missing Fiorentina’s trip to Romania in the Europa League.
The Viola play Pandurii in Europe on Thursday and the striker has been omitted from the squad by Coach Vincenzo Montella.
Some reports suggested that the former Parma man could have been hit by yet another injury, this time concerning his hip.
However, Radio Blu have insisted that is not the case, and Montella has just given Rossi a rest ahead of the weekend’s clash with Sampdoria.
