Top five: World Cup Premier League rejects (2)

Giuseppe Rossi - Italy

Football News

Guiseppe Rossi is a player who found it tough to make an impression in the Premier League.

The former Manchester United man wasn't given much of a chance to show what he possessed during his time at Old Trafford, and was allowed to leave the club in 2007.

During a loan spell at Newcastle United he was expected to shine, but the American-born Italian failed to score in his 11 appearances. 

La Liga club Villarreal were happy to take a chance on the youngster - and he truly repaid them. 

54 league goals in 134 appearances meant the Rossi was being recognised as one of the deadliest strikers in Europe and was reward with an international bow with Italy. 

The 26-year-old was recently recalled to Cesare Prandelli's squad, and is set for a place in the Azzurri team at Brazil. 

Should the current Fiorentina man impress next summer he could be in line to return to England and fulfil his unfinished business in the Premier League.
