Giuseppe Rossi “can’t wait” for the season to begin after Fiorentina beat Barcelona and Chelsea. “You can truly say Rossi is back.” The 28-year-old striker’s career has been tormented by injuries and he’s managed only a handful of appearances in the last two years, missing all of last season.
“There are two weeks till the Serie A campaign and I can’t wait to get started,” Pepito told Tuttosport while visiting the Milan Expo. The Viola impressed this summer, beating Barcelona 2-1 and Chelsea 1-0 in the International Champions Cup.
“It’s not true that summer friendlies don’t count, as they really do have value. We were able to beat big clubs and this gave us the self-belief to battle the best sides in Europe. “In the first few games I had good sensations and you can truly say Giuseppe Rossi is back.”
