Dallas Cup Alumni - Giuseppe Rossi
Rossi Called Back To Manchester United
Guiseppe Rossi and the Manchester United U19 Squad played Real Madrid U19 in front of a 17,105 crowd, a Dallas Cup record, at Pizza Hut Park stadium this past April. Although neither team did well in the Super Group division of the Cup, Rossi left Dallas and headed straight to the Manchester United First Team. Officially joining United as a striker in July of 2004, he has since this past year, made 14 appearances and scored 4 goals for United. It was shortly after signing his contract that Rossi made his mark on the Reserve Squad netting 13 goals in his first 19 starts. To further his soccer education and to get him more playing time, Sir Alex Ferguson, put Rossi "on loan" to Newcastle. Within the last week, Sir Alex has had Rossi called back to United and will be officially be with the squad sometime this week. Sir Alex stated recently, "We could have done with him here, so he might as well come back to us".
