"James' speed reminds of Usain Bolt - to be so fast like him is really incredible," Rossi said at his pre-match press conference.

"In the last years I don't remember one player that gave me this sensation. His acceleration is so peculiar, which is why Manchester United have bought him. In the past, I played against a very fast player who, for me, was the best after [Diego] Maradona - Ronaldo," he added.
