Stevan Jovetic is “following the rehabilitation process very well,” announced Fiorentina’s chief medic and he could potentially face Atalanta.
The Montenegro international missed the 3-1 win away to Milan due to a muscular problem he picked up against Cagliari.
“Jovetic is following the rehabilitation process very well,” Doctor Paolo Manetti told the official club website.
“Today he underwent tests that confirmed the complete absorption of the bruising from the lesion of the muscle.
“Jovetic has started training with medium to high work load, but that does not mean he will be immediately integrated into the group.
“It will take a few days to transition and we will make an evaluation on the Saturday before the game with Atalanta.
“He is on course to stay within the original prediction of 10-14 days out with this injury and is already in the conclusive phase of rehabilitation.”
