You can't say we didn't tell you!

Last month the media said Manchester United's Giuseppe Rossi would play four months for Newcastle and consider a season-long loan. But we reported the kid would be back in Manchester come New Year's Day ... regardless WHAT happened at St James' Park.

Rossi: “People might say there is a gap at Old Trafford with Ruud going and because we haven't bought a new forward. A permanent move to Newcastle is not on my mind at all. On my mind is to play for United.

“The important thing now is to do well for Newcastle and give 100 per cent here, then go back stronger to Old Trafford. Loan spells are usually beneficial. They have been for a few players at United. They came back to the club stronger.

“Hopefully, it will be the same for me.”
