Juan: Scudetto before Flamengo

Brazilian defender Juan has postponed talk of a return to former club Flamengo. "I want a Scudetto with Roma first."

The 32-year-old spent six years at the Brazilian outfit, until his 2002 move to Bayer Leverkusen, and he still has admirers at the club.

He has again recently been paired with a return to the side, which now contains former Milan player Ronaldinho, but he insists such a transfer is not on the horizon.

"Ronaldinho is a friend and I'd like to play alongside him for Flamengo, but not yet," he told Globoesporte.

"I still have two years left on my contract with Roma and I want to win the Scudetto before leaving," he continued.

The Brazilian international, an accomplished centre-back, joined the Giallorossi in the summer of 2007 for €6.5m.

Roma last won the Scudetto 10 years ago today after a home win over Parma.
