Ex-Man Utd Ace Giuseppe Rossi Set For Trial At LAFC To Get Career Back On Track

Ex-Manchester United star Giuseppe Rossi is set for a trial with Los Angeles FC, according to reports.

Rossi, 32, has been without a club since leaving Serie A side Genoa last summer.

And the former Italy international has been training at Carrington with United to maintain his fitness while he looks for his next club. 

Before training at United,  New Jersey-born Rossi spent time with rival MLS franchise New York Red Bulls in a bid to kick-start his career.

And US Sports writer Kristian Dyer  reckons LAFC, coached by former USA and Swansea coach Bob Bradley, are looking to run the rule over the forward as they prepare for the start of the new season this weekend.

Rossi moved to Old Trafford in 2004 from Parma.

The striker made his Premier League debut a year later and went on to make five appearances for United under Sir Alex Ferguson.

After loan stints at Newcastle and Parma, Rossi moved to Villarreal where he scored 54 goals in 136 appearances.

He then moved to Fiorentina but struggled with injuries in Florence.

Rossi earned 30 caps for Italy scoring seven goals.

But his time in Italy was soured with a failed drugs test last May, the forward testing positive for dorzolamide, which is used to treat glaucoma.

He protested his innocence and was given a warning at a hearing in October.
