'Perotti wants Boca return'

Diego Perotti’s father has claimed that the Roma winger ‘would love’ to re-join Boca Juniors.

Injury problems have limited Perotti to just two appearances for Roma this season, but the 30-year-old’s dad believes a move back to his formative club could beckon.

“My son would love to go back to Boca Juniors,” he told Radio Late.

“I would say he’s still in good shape. He didn’t feel good during his last spell in Argentina and wasn’t in a position to play.”

Similar issues saw the attacker play just once during a loan spell at Boca in 2014, while the Argentine side recently drew 2-2 with River Plate in the first leg of the Copa Libertadores Final.
