Mario Gomez to resume Viola training

Mario Gomez should return to training again next Wednesday after further tests on his injured knee showed "significant improvements" to damaged ligaments.

Mario Gomez has endured a frustrating season.

Gomez's first season in Italy has been beset by injuries, with the 28-year-old missing five months due to a knee ligament problem, before damaging his knee again during last month’s 1-0 win over Napoli.

The Germany international recently underwent a scan in Munich at the practice of Bayern Munich club doctor Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt, and he will be given the green light to return to action again next week, after further examinations.

"The outcome of the visit showed significant improvements in terms of the stability of the collateral ligament while at the same time showing a reduction in the muscle tone," a statement on the Serie A club's official website read.

"From the start of next week, the footballer will undergo a further test and, from Wednesday, he will recommence training in Florence."

Gomez’s place in the Germany squad for the World Cup is dependent on him making a full recovery and proving himself in the final seven games of the season, of which he is unlikely to feature in more than five at most, should his recovery go according to plan.
