Palermo boss Rossi delighted for Pandev at Inter Milan
"I expected this great impact at Inter," said Rossi. "I know Goran very well and I can tell he is a champion."
Pandev may struggle to find space though now that Samuel Eto'o is returning from the Africa Cup of Nations.
"He can play everywhere, in a trident or as a shadow striker so he will have no problems. Goran is incredibly skilled and fast. Furthermore, he is a team player and this is a great gift for a player.
"Before he was just a talent now he is more than that. His only drawback is that he gets lazy a bit."
