Juventus striker Tevez sparked concern from fans when talking about Batistuta with El Pais.
"It's too bad that now Gabriel has serious problems with his ankle and has many difficulties to walk. He cannot take two steps," had claimed Tevez.
However, Batistuta has moved to assure his fans he's okay.
"I'm fine, just like the last time I came to Florence. All Fiorentina fans and football fans can be reassured about my physical condition."
