Emiliano Viviano can breathe a huge sigh of relief, as the Fiorentina goalkeeper will only be out of action for two weeks.
Viviano already underwent surgery on damaged knee ligaments a year ago and that kept him out for six months, so there were understandable concerns.
However, today’s medical tests showed the knee is not damaged, but he has got a thigh strain that should see him in the stands for a couple of weeks.
