Rossi in no hurry to return to Italy

Villarreal striker Giuseppe Rossi insists he is in no hurry to return to Italy, although he admits that it would be nice to play in Serie A again in the future.

The 24-year-old scored Italy's only goal in Wednesday's 1-1 draw with Germany in Dortmund.

Interviewed in La Repubblica, he said: "Italy is my second home and I would like to go back there. But it's not so important for me.

"Spain, England and Italy are all on the same level. The important thing is the project. What I want to do is play and win.

"I feel Italian even if my first language is American. I have matured a lot in the last year. I have learned to take responsibility off the pitch."
