Ex-Viola midfielder Rossitto: Salah a ‘gift from heaven’

Posted on March 21, 2015


Former Italy and midfielder Fabio Rossitto described on-loan Viola star as a ‘gift from heaven’.

In an interview with Messaggero Veneto, retired Italian footballer Fabio Rossitto, an ex-Viola midfielder who is currently Pordenone’s manager, was full of praise for ‘unstoppable’ international Mohamed Salah.

When Rossitto was asked about Salah being a symbol for La Viola, he said: “It’s true, Salah is a gift fallen from heaven, especially if we take into account that Fiorentina received money from the exchange of Cuadrado at Chelsea.”

“Salah was not playing in England, but now he is unstoppable and breaks the defences as did [Alexis] Sanchez at Udinese, although the two are different,” added Rossitto.

The Chelsea loanee has put in impressive performances in purple thus far, scoring 6 goals and assisting twice for Fiorentina, most recently leading his team through to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Europa League.
