Fiorentina striker Christian Vieri says his injury problems are now behind him.

Vieri struck in yesterday's 2-2 draw with Atalanta and said: "My injuries are a thing of the past. I have worked hard and now I am fit and ready to play.

"For 50 days over the summer I would run from midday to the evening. During these days I always targeted reaching the fitness needed to match my teammates. It was very difficult, I lost five kilos."
