Perez super-happy to stay at Roma: I want to show I can be a great player

Marco Iacobucci Epp /

Perez spent the last 17 days at home due to the restrictions caused by the Coronavirus crisis. He is happy at Roma and trains hard to show his quality.

We are all in the same boat coping with the restrictions caused by the devastating pandemic that has been changing the world. Nobody is exempt, we have to stay safe at home waiting for the virus to disappear.

Roma’s youngster Carles Perez spent the last 17 days at home training alone to maintain a good physical condition and with the hope of returning to play soon, “I’m training one-and-a-half, two hours in the morning and evening…also because I don’t have anything else to do [laughing].”

When asked if he is happy at this time, Perez promptly said: “I’ve always wondered if leaving Barcelona would be easy or difficult. The reality is that I’m super-happy to stay at Roma for the weather, the club, and also for the people who welcomed me very nicely. I’m very happy.”

He is not looking for revenge but he wants to do something for himself as well. “I want to show everyone, not only Barcelona, that I can be a great player and I can do that here at Roma,” Carles Perez said to Cadena Cope.

Perez can be a great addition to Fonseca’s roster. The Spaniard has a 4-year contract with the Giallorossi. He has the potential to become a game-changer and the fans of the prestigious club of the Italian capital are intrigued and impressed by his ability to attack the space, dribble, and put the opponents in danger.

The 22-year-old from Granollers (Spain) made 5 Serie A appearances this season (1 assist) and he scored his first goal with the Roma jersey in the Europa League (2 caps | 173 minutes played).

He had already played the Champions League with Barcelona (1 match and 1 goal in 85 minutes against Inter at Stadio San Siro). The talented right-back may become an irreplicable player for Paulo Fonseca.
