Giuseppe Rossi has made it clear he is on the verge of leaving Serie A club Fiorentina in search of more playing time. Levante will reportedly have the right to buy Rossi at the end of the season for around 6m euros but the 28-year-old is keen to return to Italy.
“I’m the first to be disappointed because I owe a debt to the Fiorentina fans,” Rossi said. “I gave my all in everything I’ve done, from therapy to training in recent times, because I wanted to continue to give them emotions on the pitch. But it’s hard to do when chances are few and far between.
“Football is life for me, and if you take that away from me I can never be happy. I hope that you and the Fiorentina fans can understand me because I want to smile again. I’ll always keep the Viola in my heart, and I can never forget the goosebumps you gave me on Sundays.”
