Rossi: Man United stint firmly behind me

In an exclusive interview to Setanata Sports, Villarreal hotshot Giuseppe Rossi has revealed that he is not interested in moving back to his old club Manchester Unitd now and says that he has no regret in leaving Old Trafford where he was for three years without success.

The 21-year old American-Italian says:

These are the things that I don’t think about because my main focus is just Villarreal. Manchester is my past. It was three great years with a great team, with great people, great staff, great players. But now you know I’m at Villarreal and I’m trying to progress as a soccer player again. We have no idea about what is going to happen in the future. The best thing is just to think of the present and, for me, the present is Villarreal and my main objective is to do well for them.

It is difficult to play in such a big team as Manchester United,” he said. “They had great strikers such as Louis Saha, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Wayne Rooney and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. There it is very hard for a young player to try and impress the people, therefore I made the choice to go and I think it was the best option because as a young player you have to try and play and try to gain some experience.

Coming back? I don’t know. What I have to do is show people I can play football and try to gain experience in order then to improve myself in different situations on the football field.

Legendary former AC Milan coach Arrigo Sachi says that Rossi will soon become one of the five best players in the world. Let’s wait and watch.
