Fiorentina welcome Mutu back to side

Fiorentina have confirmed that troublesome striker Adrian Mutu has been reinstated to the team, having not featured for La Viola since December 11.

Mutu, 32, was dropped from the squad after walking out of training before his team's opening game of the year at Bologna on January 6.

The former Chelsea and Juventus forward had sought a transfer away from Fiorentina and was angry the Florence club refused to put him on the market despite having received offers from several clubs.

Mutu, who issued a public apology to the club last month, could now play in this Sunday's match at Parma.

A statement from Fiorentina read: "Fiorentina announces that player Adrian Mutu will return to train with the first team tomorrow and hence, will be available to coach Sinisa Mihajlovic.''

Fiorentina ended a three-match winless run in Wednesday's 1-0 triumph over Genoa. They lie 11th in the standings heading into this weekend encounter at the Ennio Tardini stadium. Mutu has scored one goal in six league appearances for Fiorentina this season.
