Bruno Peres: ‘Roma can win Scudetto’

Bruno Peres has his official Roma presentation and declares “we can win the Scudetto”.

The wing-back has joined the Giallorossi from Torino, and believes they can wrest the title from his former city rivals, Juventus.

“I don’t know if it’s true or not that all the teams that were linked wanted me,” Peres shrugged in his Press conference.

“I went on holiday, my agent did the work. When we closed things with Roma I was happy, this is a great team which can help me grow.

“We can win the Scudetto and we can play for the Champions League too. I’m very happy to wear this important shirt.

“Juventus? They’ll always be my rivals, from Torino to Roma. We have a good squad with a lot of players, I think we can work for a different season and win the Scudetto.

“Enough with Juventus winning, I can’t take it anymore!

“I’m sure with our team and our Coach [Luciano Spalletti] we can do well.”

It has been suggested that Peres’ arrival will see the Lupi switch to a back-three, but the Brazilian insists he can play at right-back, in addition to the right wing-back position he occupied at Toro.

“I spoke to the Coach about tactics, I can play in a back-four. It’s no problem for me, I can play in a three or a four. He asked me to work and always improve.

“I can even play on the left, it’s all the same to me.

“I’m at 100 per cent, I did pre-season with Torino and I also played one match. I’ll be available if the Coach wants me, or I can go on the bench.”
