Jovetic wants to be a Viola star

Fiorentina's Stevan Jovetic has spoken of his hopes for 2011-12 after he missed all of last season because of injury.

The fantasy player ruptured knee ligaments in pre-season training and he failed to recover in time to make a competitive appearance before the previous term ended in May.

However, now back to full fitness, he's keen to make up for lost time at the Stadio Artemio Franchi.

"I hope to be the revelation of the campaign and it would be great to qualify for Europe," he told the Corriere dello Sport.

"It's a year and a half since I last played in a proper match and it's a year and a half that I have been waiting to."

The Viola struggled without the Montenegro international last term, but he's confident they can impress over the next nine months.

"The club did some important things on the transfer market," he added. "The directors have pinned their hopes on some important players and we don't want to fail."
