Massimo Ambrosini is desperate to be fit for Fiorentina’s Serie A game against former side Milan.
The midfielder has been sidelined since he picked up a muscle strain in the 4-2 win over Juventus on October 20.
The 36-year-old won’t be available for tonight’s tie versus Napoli, but he wants to take part in the weekend’s San Siro clash.
“Ambrosini is doing everything possible to return for the Milan tie,” agent Moreno Roggi told Radio Blu. “However, caution is needed.”
The former Italian international joined the Viola in the summer after Milan, a club who signed him in 1995, didn’t renew his contract.
