Missing the last five games due to a thigh injury, Rossi is ready to return. The striker had already been carrying out work on the field and, this Thursday, participated in training normally with the rest of the group.
Since returning to Vasco in August, Rossi has played five games and has a 100% success rate. With him on the field, the team won every match.
– Very happy to be back training. Today was my first training with a group. Happy with the numbers. I always had it in my head that I wanted to come back to help and contribute. I didn’t just want to watch anyone play. Happy with the numbers. I hope we come away with three points on Sunday to take a leap forward in the table. Victory is important.
Asked, this Thursday, at a press conference, at CT Moacyr Barbosa, about the reason for his importance to Vasco’s squad, Rossi cited his partnership with Vegetti and said he was eager to return to play alongside the Argentine top scorer.
– Hard question. I think my game fits very well with Vegetti. There’s Pec who is an acute winger, but plays more on the left. As I look for the bottom a lot, this makes it easier for Vegetti. I think it’s the ideal and perfect fit. I can’t wait to play with him again. He always asks how I am. Even his wife asked me when I’m going back. I’m anxious.
Identification with the crowd
– Vasco fans are not “Nutella”. He really loves the club. It is a moment of transition for Vasco, we are already thinking about increasing the capacity of our stadium. And a new Vasco. We hope to get through this moment today so that next year we can fight for glory and titles. It’s what we want as players and fans.
Postponement of the game against Cruzeiro
– It’s a little difficult for us to see our rivals playing and us not. But we will have a direct confrontation against Cruzeiro. It’s all up to us in the final stretch. The head is very calm. We know the difficulty facing América-MG. Despite being relegated, it was a team that sold our victory there dearly. We have to be focused. We know the pressure. It just depends on us.
– We try to set an example for younger people by arriving at the club early, doing things that will help them. We have other references in the cast. Vegetti, Léo… We felt calm at that moment. Pec has been a professional for a few years now, he has already built a shell and experience as a Vasco player. We talk, it’s a tough cast. We pass on a lot of experience to them.
