Rome:

Former Italy striker Christian Vieri had to go to hospital after being bitten on the nose by a former business associate at the Spanish island of Ibiza, his lawyer revealed on Friday.

"It was a reckless and inexplicable act," said Danilo Buongiorno, who added that there had been no dispute between the former partners.

Vieri has filed a complaint for assault.

The 38-year-old played for Italy's three biggest clubs - Juventus, Inter Milan and AC Milan - and scored 23 times for his country in 49 appearances.
