Fiorentina have provided injury updates on Gaetano Castrovilli and Lucas Torreira, with Castrovilli set to miss the rest of the season. The Uruguay international picked up an injury and was forced off at half-time in Fiorentina’s Coppa Italia match against Juventus. Meanwhile, Castrovilli underwent knee surgery on Thursday and will be out until the end of the year:
ACF Fiorentina can confirm that Lucas Torreira was forced off the pitch during the match against Juventus with bruising on his left hip.
Diagnostic tests on Thursday morning revealed a grade one lesion on his transverse abdominal muscle. The player has already started his rehabilitation and physio programme and will be assessed in the coming days.
The surgery required reconstruction of the anterior crucial ligament (of Gaetano Castrovilli ), sutures to the medial collateral ligament and lateral meniscus, and reconstruction of the medial capsule.
The procedure carried out by Professor Mariani was a complete success. Gaetano will return to Florence in the next few days, where he will commence his rehabilitation programme. His recovery period is expected to take between eight and ten months.”
