Rossi looking forward to Man Utd return

Rossi said: “I’m looking forward to going back to Old Trafford. I’ve spoken to Sir Alex and I hope that there will be opportunities for me to play when I go back. That’s my main priority now, that’s all I’m thinking about. He has said he wants to have a big squad of players in the second half of the season and there might be an opportunity for me to show what I can do.

“I’ll always have fond memories of the Newcastle fans. They are so passionate and whenever we have gone away they have followed us in their thousands, but I’m not thinking of coming back, I’m only thinking about Manchester United.”
