FiorentinaÔÇÖs┬áGiuseppe Rossi is dreaming of a weekend goal against┬áJuventusÔÇô a club who he admits came close to signing him in the past.
The striker is now back to full service after missing the majority of the last two seasons with a recurring knee problem.
ÔÇ£We are coming off two horrible home draws against┬áCagliari┬áand Parma,ÔÇØ he told the┬áGazzetta┬ádello┬áSport. ÔÇ£We need three points.
ÔÇ£Now IÔÇÖm thinking of a goal against┬áJuventus┬ábecause I live in the present and not the future. DonÔÇÖt ask me about the┬áMaracana, the World Cup, the Champions League.
ÔÇ£All I want to do right now is try to beat Juventus.ÔÇØ
The Old Lady, who are aiming for a third successive┬áScudetto, are currently in second place after winning six and drawing one of their seven League games so far this term.
ÔÇ£If you are able to limit the influence of Andrea┬áPirlo┬áthen you have a nice advantage,ÔÇØ added the former Parma and Manchester United man.
ÔÇ£Juve┬áare in pole position for the title, but the other teams are close.ÔÇØ
Rossi joined┬áFiorentina┬áin January from Villarreal, 18 months after┬áJuventuscontacted the Spanish club for his services.
ÔÇ£Talks with┬áJuventus┬áa few years ago were very active, but then Villarreal qualified for the Champions League and they didnÔÇÖt sell anyone.ÔÇØ
