Stevan Jovetic to Miss Milan Clash?

Fiorentina - agosto 2009 - San Piero a Sieve (FI)A worrying news arrives from Fiorentina camp ahead of their upcoming difficult tie against Ac Milan on Saturday as reports from Italy suggested that the Viola might be missing Stevan Jovetic due to injury.

Revealed by the Florence based club’s website, Jovetic reportedly picked up a muscular lesion during the player’s international duty with Montenegro this past weekend, the club’s medical team is monitoring the injury and hoping that Jojo could make the Milan game.

This news is obviously a concerning thing for Fiorentina, especially their new coach, Delio Rossi, who could definitely use Jovetic’s contribution in the match against Milan. The Montenegro international has been in a pretty good form this season, contributing a lot on his club’s attack by scoring important goals and also created openings along with chances.

Should Fiorentina really loses Jovetic against Milan, they will definitely have a tougher job when facing the Rossoneri especially in trying to break down the fashion capital’s defense, which consist of quality players such as Thiago Silva, Alessandro Nesta or maybe Philippe Mexes. Jojo has really been a major force in driving the Viola’s attack this season especially with inconsistent form of Riccardo Montolivo, who seems to have his mind out of Fiorentina already.

However, there’s still a big hope that Jovetic could make the cut on Saturday as the Fiorentina medical team are working intensively to fix the player’s problem at the moment. With an immediate medical action, obviously the Viola’s doctors is hoping that the attacking midfielder could at least play up to 90% of his physical condition, considering the importance of the match for the Florence based outfit.

Jovetic appearance has been pretty surprising and encouraging this season as many wouldn’t thought that he might need a bit more time to get his touch back after missing most of last season due to bad knee injury. The Montenegro international has really been one of the most attractive player in Serie A this season, steering the Viola in plenty of matches, despite that they’re not actually in a pretty good form in this start of the season.
