Fiorentina's Montolivo desperate to face Atalanta

Fiorentina midfielder Riccardo Montolivo is desperate to shake off an ankle injury to be fit for this weekend's clash with former club Atalanta.

"I'll take the doctors' advice," said the youngster, "but I am anxious to play.

"Playing against Atalanta obviously gives me greater motivation. They're a fine club, which has showed last season how strong they are after getting back into Serie A."
