Rigoberto Rivas’ agent Riccardo Pacini has admitted that his client hopes to be able to extend his stay with Reggina past the end of this season.
The Honduran national team player joined the Serie C club on a season long loan this past Summer and although he has only played semi-regularly this term, the 21-year-old wishes to remain with the club.
“Rivas’ desire is to stay in Reggio Calabria, we are looking for the right solution with Massimo Taibi to find an agreement,” Pacini remarked in an interview with Reggina’s official club broadcaster Reggina TV yesterday afternoon.
“We are happy to have won the league and happy with the project and hope he can continue here. It will depend on Inter and it is necessary to understand if a new loan could happen.”
This season Rivas, who is under contract with Inter until the end of the 2021/22 season, has made 17 appearances across all competitions to date.
In his time on the park, which totals just over 900 minutes, Rivas has scored two goals and has provided a total of four assists for his teammates.
Rivas joined Inter at youth level back initially on loan in the Summer of 2016 and he was bought outright the following Summer. He has not played a first team game for Inter though having spent every season out on loan since joining permanently.
