Glenn Roeder (much to Sir Alex Ferguson's frustration) hardly played the youngster, but he has moved to his old club Palma on loan until May ... and scored on his debut.

Parma coach Stefano Pioli: "Rossi has done really well. He has played with great intensity and quality. We knew that he would help us and I hope he can continue to play like this.
"I told him to play with the same intensity that he played with in the Premiership.
"He is a kid who has the right mentality, who wants to have a good career working hard and I know he can give us a lot."
Rossi: "I'm young and I want to play, that is why I decided to go on loan to Parma," said Rossi.
"I want to play as much as possible. I am delighted with the goal and I want to dedicate it to my cousin Sergio, who passed away several months ago.
"I know I have to keep my feet firmly on the ground. There is a lot of work left to do and I will try to do my best to help Parma avoid relegation."
