Fiorentina’s poor luck with their strikers continues, as Mario Gomez has been ruled out for the next three weeks through injury.
The Viola, who are without Giuseppe Rossi for a few months with another knee issue, will have to again also do without his German strike counterpart for a period too.
Gomez, who missed a majority of last season with a problematic knee injury of his own, has been confirmed as having suffered a first-degree strain to his right thigh.
Picked up in the closing stages of the weekend match with Atalanta, the 29-year-old is confirmed by Fiorentina as facing three weeks out, with follow-up tests on the issue due in 10 days’ time.
This rules the striker out of a potential six or seven fixtures between League and Europe for his club, as well as contention for Germany’s October internationals.
