Rossi ‘always grateful’ to Villarreal

Giuseppe Rossi hasn’t forgotten what Villarreal meant to him as he prepares to face the Yellow Submarine with Levante.

Rossi returned to La Liga in January, joining from Fiorentina, having called El Madrigal home between 2007 and January 2012.

“I have many fond memories. I’ll always be grateful to the fans and to [President Fernando] Roig,” he said, Marca reports.

“If I score I’m sure I won’t celebrate. Hopefully I will score but out of respect I wouldn’t celebrate.”

He added that he expected to see the current Villarreal squad going well given the quality in their ranks.

“I’m not surprised at their trajectory. They have young players of a high level and are havibg a great season,” he noted.
