'What About That Son?' - Rossi Impressed Fergie During Man Utd Training

'What About That Son?' - Rossi Impressed Fergie During Man Utd Training

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that Manchester United will not sign Giuseppe Rossi.

The 31-year-old Italian international, currently a free agent, has been training with the club.

Rossi, who started his career at Old Trafford, played 14 times under Alex Ferguson. He left to join Villareal in the summer of 2007 and has since also played for Fiorentina, Levante, Celta Vigo and Genoa.

Rossi was released by Genoa at the end of last summer after failing a doping test in May. He escaped a ban when his defence claimed that the positive test occurred due to contaminated food.

"We are not going to sign Giuseppe, I don’t think," Solskjaer said following his side's win against Spurs on Sunday.

He’s training well with us, he looks sharp. He’s looking for a job and a club, so he’s probably going to stay another week with us unless someone takes him.

According to Solskjaer, Rossi impressed Alex Ferguson during a training session on Saturday.

"He scored a fantastic goal in training and yesterday the gaffer turned around and said 'What about that son?'

"We’re helping him get fit before his next move. If there are any takers, they should be quick.”
