Jovetic chronic hip condition

Stevan Jovetic has not suffered any lesions, but Fiorentina are not clear when he’ll be able to play through the chronic hip condition.

The Montenegro international pulled out of Saturday’s 2-0 defeat to Inter just hours before kick-off.

This evening the Viola released a statement confirming there were “no lesions” to the muscles or tendons.

However, Jovetic is suffering from a painful condition caused by compression of a nerve in his hip.

“Specific therapy is already underway. As for the prognosis, it will be evaluated over the next few days.”
