Jovetic: 'Forza Fiorentina!'

Manchester City talent Stevan Jovetic will be cheering on Fiorentina tonight against Juventus in Europe.

His former teammates take on the Bianconeri at 20.05 GMT in the first leg of a Europa League Round of 16 tie.

“I hope Fiorentina win,” Jovetic told Sky Sport Italia.

“I continue to follow Serie A and in particular Fiorentina, who are doing well and I hope they continue like this.

“Every game has its own story, so Sunday’s Serie A defeat in Turin has already been shelved. I expect two wonderful matches.”

Jovetic was sold to make way for Giuseppe Rossi, but his replacement has been ruled out since January with a serious knee injury after netting 14 Serie A goals.

“I trained a couple of times with him and he is very strong. It was a shame for his third knee injury, as I know what that feels like.

“If he hadn’t been forced off the field, he’d have scored 25 goals this season. I hope he can get on track soon.”
