Fiorentina’s injury crisis continues to grow with news Borja Valero will be out for at least two weeks with a thigh strain.
The Spanish midfielder underwent tests today that found a first degree lesion in the left thigh muscle.
Viola medical staff confirmed he will have treatment for 10 days and then undergo new tests to see how the situation has developed.
It’s another heavy blow for Coach Vincenzo Montella, who is already without Giuseppe Rossi and Mario Gomez for the foreseeable future.
Borja Valero will certainly miss games against Genoa and Cagliari, while he is also at risk for the Coppa Italia semi-final with Udinese.
