Gomez gets off the mark

Mario Gomez needed little over two minutes to open his account for Fiorentina in a comfortable pre-season friendly victory against Cremonese on Wednesday.

Mario Gomez joined Fiorentina from European Champions Bayern Munich.

Leading the Viola attack along with fit-again Giuseppe Rossi, the Germany international, who was greeted by almost 25,000 fans upon his arrival in Florence just over a week ago, made an immediate impression in a 7-1 win.

He bagged two goals with Rossi also chipping in with a brace as Vincenzo Montella's side underlined their title credentials for this season.

Massimo Ambrosini, Joaquin and Marcos Alonso also featured in a new-look Fiorentina side while another new signing, Josip Ilicic, was presented to the fans at the final whistle.

Defender Marvin Compper has registered the enthusiasm around the club and believes Gomez's arrival could inspire them to greater things after they only just missed out on third place last season.

"[President] Andrea Della Valle has charged us up. He and the club have done a great job and it does us good to see the fans enjoying themselves so much," he said. "[Gomez] is one of the best attackers in Europe and, although he has already won a lot, he is still hungry.

"He's happy and he feels part of the team. He followed his heart by coming here and he wanted a club who are hungry for success, like we are."
