Daniele De Rossi has pledged his commitment to Boca Juniors after making his long-awaited comeback on the pitch. “I want to play more here.”
De Rossi had gone almost three months without an appearance for Boca due to a hamstring injury.
However, the former Roma midfielder came off the bench last night to help his side beat Union 2-0.
“I’m not thinking of another place or team, I want to play a bit more here,” said the 36-year-old after the game.
“Of course, when you’re 36, you have to make decisions every day and I ask many questions of myself, but I believe this is a sign of maturity and intelligence.
“I want to understand how I am physically, and right now I think I’m very fit.
“Things were very bad a month ago. In my career, I’ve always tried to recover before I could to return to the pitch and I did the same to play River.
“Unfortunately, I made a mistake and I hurt myself again, but now I’m fine and this is where I love to play.
“It’s an honour to wear this shirt and I just need to play because I believe I’m now in my best shape.”
