Giuseppe Rossi will meet his former teammates tomorrow as United prepare to take on Villarreal at the El Madrigal. The young Italian missed the two teams’ clash at Old Trafford but will start on Tuesday.

Patrice Evra now says Rossi’s potential was obvious when he was Old Trafford and he’s not surprised in the slightest that he became a key man in a top side.

‘I knew he was going to be a good player,’ he told the Manchester Evening News.

‘It was easy. Everybody knows Giuseppe Rossi. If you give him the ball in the box he will score every time.

‘He is such a good professional. I am not surprised what he is doing now.

‘When he left Manchester United I could only wish him all the best, but not against us tomorrow.’

Fair enough.
