Rossi going back to Italy?

Agent of Giuseppe Rossi: “Lavezzi going to England and Rossi to Napoli? I cannot confirm, but it is a possibility that Lavezzi might leave Napoli. I cannot rule out Rossi joining Napoli. After five years at Villarreal, I think that all parties are more susceptible to listening to the offers that arrive. We will see, but one thing is clear: Villarreal are open to selling Rossi, and the player is ready to leave the club.”

 

“Giuseppe has never hidden the fact that he dreams of playing for a top club. We consider Inter to be a top top club, but he would like to play in the Champions League. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean he would turn down Inter even if they don’t qualify.”

 

“It has unfortunately been a negative season for Giuseppe so far due to the knee injury. At the moment, he is solely focusing on recovering, and he might still play some Liga games this term.”

Moratti: Derby agains’t Juve very important for many reasons

“Regardless of the league table, the match against Juventus still remains the most important one of the season. That’s definitely how it feels for me, and it should be like that for others, too. Also for political and other reasons that we know all too well. It’s time to rekindle Inter’s pride. I expect something extra from everyone.”

“We have to get the maximum out of the remaining 10 games. The match against Juventus should be the start of something. It’s time to wake up.”

Ferdinand: We’ll show who’s the boss

“Walking around in town, you see more and more blue shirts than you probably ever would have seen over the last 10 years. But success sometimes brings people out of the woodwork, so fingers crossed, we can delay that and make sure that we get this title sewn up this season.”

 

“Who knows? We’ll have to wait and see, but in an ideal world, we’ll have it sewn up by the time we go there. I don’t expect it to be finished by the time we go their stadium. Every game is a cup final now and every result now is going to sway the title this way or that.”

Messi: A dream came true

“The truth is that I am overjoyed. I never dreamed that one day I could be Barcelona’s top scorer. I don’t know if it was my best goal. When a game finishes, the first goal I scored for Barcelona, just like the last one and just like all the others, they are all very special to me.”

 

“I have always wanted to repay Barcelona for all they have done for me. It makes me very proud to be part of the club’s history. I could not have done this without the support of my companions. I am delighted to see that in my own people are happy for me.”

Van Geel: Kuyt, what a player

“I would love to welcome Dirk at Feyenoord as soon as possible. He fits in here more than anybody else. He is more than welcome at the club. However, I do not think that it’s realistic to believe that he could return this summer.”

 

Kuyt’s agent: “Feyenoord know that Dirk will join them once he returns to Netherlands. But when? It’s impossible to answer that question. We are just waiting to see what happens at Liverpool now and what’s coming his way. We will make a decision on his future after that.”
