Rossi agent: Too early to set return

Giuseppe Rossi’s agent has claimed that it is too early to say whether the striker will be fit for the World Cup.

The Fiorentina forward injured his knee in the Viola’s 1-0 win over Livorno at the weekend. And despite rumours he could be back in eight weeks, Rossi’s representative has refused to comment on how long the goalscorer will be sidelined for.

“I’ll eat with him this evening and spend the rest of the day in his company,” Andrea Pastorello told Radio Crc.

“We are waiting for the results from Monday and only then can we decide on a return date.

“My feeling is a good one, but I’m not a doctor. I can say that Giuseppe looks well, but on Sunday it was the complete opposite – we all feared the worst.”
