Fiorentina forward Giuseppe Rossi says he will not rush his return from his latest knee surgery.
Rossi has been sidelined since undergoing a fourth operation on his troublesome right knee at the beginning of September.
On Thursday, the American-born forward said, "I have to respect all the timetables, without being in a hurry. We are working every day, we're nearly there, but I will return the day my knee tells me so.
"I really want to bring joy to the Fiorentina fans, because they deserve it.
