Roma defender Dodo has admitted that he is desperate to prove his worth at the capital club.
The Brazilian left-back has only made seven appearances for the Giallorossi since arriving from Corinthians in the summer.
But the 21-year-old has conceded that it has taken some time for him to become accustomed to life in Serie A.
“Since I've been in Rome my life has changed a lot,” he told Roma Channel. “It is very different in Brazil.
“I had some difficulty in the beginning, but now everything is a lot easier for me.
“A lot of fans stop me on the street and ask me when I will play.
“I really want to play. I am just looking forward to putting on a display and showing my worth.”
