Fiorentina Worried with Star Continuously Getting Hurt

Nicolas Gonzalez left the Inter clash early and, while he avoided major injuries, he’ll be forced to miss more time in his challenging start to the season. The winger didn’t suffer a thigh strain, but he’ll most likely sit out two-to-three weeks with a less severe muscular problem, Tyc Sports informs.

The attacker will be ready to go for the World Cup. He had recently returned to the starting XI after battling heel soreness for about two months. He has been limited to just 10 appearances, for a total of 389 minutes, so far.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Fiorentina are growing concerned with the precarious health of Nicolas Gonzalez. He was the most expensive acquisition in the history of the club. They paid €27M to sign him from Stuttgart. While he has generally delivered when available, he has missed 28 matches since 2020, about a third of the total. And the tally will continue to grow.

The winger was hopeful of building on a solid first campaign in Serie A, where he logged 7 goals and 6 assists in 33 appearances, also with the help of the Qatar showcase. Instead, he has rarely been at full strength thus far. He was getting the nod for just the second time in Serie A this season over the weekend.

Our Take on Nicolas Gonzalez and Fiorentina

The Viola have reaped very little compared to what they sow from an offensive standpoint. That has a lot to do with their star being routinely on the shelf and Luka Jovic struggling to get going. The second part of the equation has improved as of late. Their comeback hopes hinge on the production of their frontline.
