Fiorentina striker Mario Gomez is excited about the potential of his partnership with Giuseppe Rossi.

The former Bayern Munich centre-forward suffered a knee injury last month.

"It has been easy to settle in with such a great group of players. We really get along and the fans are also wonderful, as you can feel their passion for the team.

"I get on very well with Rossi and he is an extraordinary player. He was just unlucky with injuries, but he's one of the greatest strikers in the world."
