Gomez could retire at Fiorentina

Mario Gomez admits it is “a definite possibility” he will see out the rest of his playing career at Fiorentina.

The striker spoke to in Germany ahead of tonight’s Coppa Italia semi-final against Juventus.

“Tonight our chances of qualification are 50-50 and it is a very important game for us,” he said after the first leg ended 2-1 for the Viola in Turin.

“The future? I am very happy here, but it’s too early to say whether I’ll see out my career in Florence, even if it’s a definite possibility.

“Are the fans better in Germany or Italy? I don’t like to make comparisons. The Bayern Munich and Stuttgart supporters are great, but I can also say for certain that the Viola fans are absolutely fantastic.”

Gomez had gone months without a goal and struggled even after recovering from injury, but seems to have found his scoring touch again.

“Fitness and form are very important for players like me. I always worked hard, but knew it was just a matter of time before I got back on form.”
