“I am very self-critical, you have seen only six of what I can do from one to ten. I can do much better, much more,” Pereira said during the interview in Prima Serata on Inter Channel yesterday.
Pereira said, as a player and as a person:
“I’m fine here in Italy. I’ve seattled in well and my companions has helped me so much, everyone. Especially Pupi, Gargano, with whom I share rooms with in away-games, Guarin and Samuel. I like Como, that is where I live. I like hanging outside with my wife and my kid and it is not a problem to stop and take autographs, the fans here are always passionate and always supports the team. Both when we win and when we unfortunatly lose.”
Who inspired me? Roberto Carlos has always been a player that I have followed a lot. Can I be the new Maicon in the future? I do not like to compare. I can only say I was glad I had the opportunity to train with him . Other sports I practiced apart from football? I like athletics and Marathon.”
Pereira received many questions asked by fans, including a comment on the young Marco Benassi:
“When he trains, he is giving all his got and is always smiling.”
Inter player have also addressed racism: what would you do if you were in a situation like the one that we saw with the Rossoneri star Boateng?
“I do not know, it’s hard to say. I never experienced such a thing. In the early stages you hear so many things, I try to ignore them.”
Which was the hardest game for you as a player?
“The match against Chievo, It was on a very difficult field to play on.”
Finally, a testimony of love for Inter and football in general, showing how Pereira is a flawless professional:
“I defend the jersey to death when I play, every game for me is always the most important. Against Roma I hope I get the opportunity to prove it.”
