Rodriguez hopeful after summer signings

Fiorentina defender Gonzalo Rodriguez believes that the club’s striking options this season can have a huge effect.

The Viola signed Mario Gomez from Bayern Munich over the summer, and also welcomed back Giuseppe Rossi from long-term injury.

And the Argentine centre-back believes that the pair can fire his team to glory.

“I know Rossi, and I think he’s the best striker I’ve ever played with,” the former Villarreal man told Sky Sport Italia.

“I’m sure he’s going to be a great reinforcement for us.

“Gomez has great experience and has come from a really strong team.

“It’s a big chance for him.

“He wants, like Rossi, to play regularly and win things.”
