Juan eager to play for Zeman

Roma defender Juan is hoping to revive his career in the Italian capital under new boss Zdenek Zeman.

The Czech Coach, fresh from leading Pescara to the Serie B title, has signed a two-year deal at the Olimpico where he will replace Spaniard Luis Enrique.

“Zeman is one of the best and most stimulating Coaches in Italian football,” the centre-back told La Repubblica. “I really can’t wait to start working for him.

“I’m currently working to a rehabilitation programme after injury and I want to be back as soon as possible so I can understand Zeman’s football.

“I want to be totally ready by the time we start pre-season training.”

The veteran, who has just one year left on his deal at the Stadio Olimpico, had a form and injury affected 2011-12.

Juan, who joined the Giallorossi from Bayer Leverkusen in 2007, was used on just 16 occasions by Enrique this term.
