Jovetic out until next year

Fiorentina midfielder Stevan Jovetic is facing up to seven months on the sidelines after damaging ligaments in his right knee.

Jovetic, who has been almost an ever-present since signing from Partizan Belgrade in 2008, suffered the injury following a clash with team-mate Mario Bolatti in pre-season training yesterday and tests today revealed the extent of the damage.

The 20-year-old Montenegro international is set to undergo surgery and will miss most of the campaign.
