Details of Josip Ilicic’s injury have been revealed this afternoon, with the Fiorentina attacker suffering from ankle damage.
The Slovenian playmaker has been missing for some time now for the Viola – initially believed to be because of a bruised ankle.
However, it has been confirmed today by Vincenzo Montella that Ilicic has taken a knock to the capsule surrounding the ankle.
Luckily there is no actually damage to the ligament, but it is unclear how long the summer signing from Fiorentina will be out for.
