Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has invited former player Giuseppe Rossi the chance to train with the first team as he looks for a new club.
The 31-year-old was released by Serie A side Genoa in the summer with Solskjaer allowing his former team mate to maintain his fitness at Carrington.
Rossi's presence at the club has not gone unnoticed, though the Italian has moved to dismiss suggestions that he is set to become part of the backroom staff at the club:
Hahahahaha me a coach?????? https://t.co/RlDsjp0qs8

Rossi, who has 30 caps for the Italian national side, was at United from 2004 to 2007 and was once touted as the next big thing at Old Trafford but injuries hampered his career, with the forward becoming something of a journeyman in the latter stages of his playing days.
Rossi will be fondly remembered at Villarreal however, with the Italian notching 82 goals in 192 appearances for the Yellow Submarine.
