Giuseppe Rossi is enjoying a brilliant moment in his career. After suffering consecutive knee injuries, the New Jersey man is leading Serie A’s scoring charts.
However, many ask, will be the impact of Mario Gomez return in Fiorentina’s line up on Rossi’s performance?
“It’s not easy being the only forward on the field, but Giuseppe is doing an awesome job: he’s physically fit, his left foot is practically remote-controlled. When Gomez returns, Giuseppe will certainly cover a different part of the field, however, I believe that he will be equally successful as he will be able to work off of Gomez”, Andrea Pastorello, Rossi’s agent, told Firenzeviola.it.
“I don’t believe that Rossi is thinking about winning the scoring title. He’s happy to be in Florence, and gets along with his teammates, coach and club. I thank the club for believing in him after such a difficult time in Giuseppe’s career, and no, I dare not think about extending his contract [read: his increasing his salary] at this moment… unless Fiorentina’s management wants to engage us”, he continued.
Giuseppe Rossi has scored 13 goals in 17 Serie A appearances for Fiorentina.
