Perotti desperate for silverware

Diego Perotti confesses if he left Roma without winning any silverware, ‘it would be a bigger disappointment than Argentina’s World Cup’.

Perotti has failed to lift a trophy in his three years at Roma, and the Argentine spoke of his desperation to end his drought, while passing judgment on Juventus’ purchase of Cristiano Ronaldo.

“I’ve always said that I won’t end my career at Roma,” he told ESPN.

“However, if I had to leave without winning something, it would be a bigger disappointment than Argentina’s World Cup.

“We’re strong, we know what we want and we have the chance to win. It would be great to lift a trophy at Roma.

“Ronaldo? The Italian League had recently lost a bit of appeal abroad. We know the level is high here.

“Juventus have reached two Champions League Finals, we’ve reached the semi-finals and the Italian level isn’t as poor as some have said. With Cristiano it’ll grow again.”
