Bayern Munich powerbroker Franz Beckenbauer has backed Mario Gomez's move to Fiorentina.

The Germany striker signed for the Viola this week.

"I think Gomez has made the right choice," he told Sky Sports News. "At this time Bayern are overcrowded with attackers.

"And Guardiola prefers a more face-paced game with lots of movement, in which there's little room for a target-man.

"In any case, the Italian League is always fascinating.

"And in Florence, Gomez has chosen the perfect destination to play."
