Ex-Man Utd star Giuseppe Rossi, 33, wanted by Serie B side Monza on free transfer after years of injury hell


EX-MANCHESTER UNITED striker Giuseppe Rossi is wanted by Serie B side Monza, according to reports.

The 33-year-old Italian has endured injury hell since leaving Old Trafford in 2007 but could still have a future in the game.

Rossi played just 14 times in all competitions during his time at the Red Devils between 2004 and 2007.

He scored four times and bagged one assist.

But other than 191 games for Villareal between 2007 and 2013, he has only managed more than 30 appearances for his any of his SEVEN clubs since just once.

A series of injuries – mainly knee – have seen him play just 11 first team games since the beginning of the 2017/18 season.

Rossi managed ten matches for Italian side Genoa that season but found himself without a club for nearly TWO YEARS after the end of that campaign.

And he was out of action from July 2018 until February of this year.

Rossi landed a contract with MLS side Real Salt Lake but after making just one appearance, coronavirus struck and saw the American season halted.

However, he has been handed a lifeline by Serie B side Monza, according to Italian outlet TuttoSport.

The second tier side are owned by former AC Milan owner and Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi.

And the club recently made headlines again after they were linked with sensational moves for Kaka and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Kaka, 38, has been retired since 2017 while Zlatan, 38, has turned out in Serie A for Milan this season before coronavirus brought football to a standstill.

Monza were recently promoted to Serie B for the first time in 30 years after the Serie C season was curtailed because of coronavirus.
