Pereira admits he could do better

Inter defender Alvaro Pereira has claimed that he has enjoyed his first few months in Italy following his summer move from Porto.

The Uruguay international has only played a bit-part for the Nerazzurri this season, starting just eight League games.

And the 27-year-old has admitted that he could do more for Andrea Stramaccioni's side.

“It's been great here so far,” he told Il Giornale. “But I feel I could do a better job for the team.

“If you think only of yourself, you will not reach the highest levels of the game. When you make a mistake you have to be self-critical and try to understand what has gone wrong.

“It's like when you get knocked out in boxing – you don't have time to think, you just have to get back up and fight.

“Inter is in my heart. Being here for me is a great prize. I am living a dream.”
