Fiorentina doctor Paolo Manetti has confirmed that Giuseppe Rossi has returned to full-training with the first team squad.
He also maintained that the primary objective for both Rossi and injured strike partner Mario Gomez was to have them both 100 per cent fit for the Coppa Italia final.
“It is now three months since Rossi had his injury on 5th January,” Manetti told reporters. “The road to getting him back fit again is coming to an end.
“The player has been working on the pitch for two weeks now. Since then has has been working with the group but avoiding heavy tackles.
“We will monitor how his knee is doing. The target is to get him to a competitive level for the Coppa Italia final.
“As for Mario Gomez, he will return to the group next week while we continue to monitor him.
“For him too, the target is to have him at 100 per cent for the cup final.”
