Rocchi: Why am I not wanted?

Free agent Tommaso Rocchi doesn’t understand why he’s attracted no interest from any Serie A club.

The 35-year-old is currently unemployed after his six-month contract with Inter expired at the end of June.

“To be honest, I’m surprised by the disregard in me from Italian top-flight clubs this summer,” noted the striker.

“I’ve had a series of offers from abroad, interesting ones at that, but I’ve been really thrown by the fact that nobody in Serie A is thinking of me.

“I’ve had a few proposals from Serie B, including one from Padova, but I want to underline that I still feel good enough for the top Division.”

Rocchi, formerly of Empoli, joined the Nerazzurri in January after almost a decade with capital outfit Lazio.

Over the last three seasons in Serie A, Rocchi has scored 11 goals in 54 appearances.
