Cicinho: Everything about Roma so very exciting

Cicinho is delighted with the welcome he has received from Roma and their fans.

The former Real Madrid fullback completed his move to Roma yesterday and declared: "I was happy in Madrid, but I will be even more so here. I have such a strong desire to wear this jersey and I've already heard about the derby. It is all so very exciting.

"The most important thing for me in choosing a club was the history of it. Plus when I came to Rome to get my EU passport, I was enchanted by the city. I also loved the openness of the public. Playing here is just like being in Brazil.

"I made this decision along with my family. I also did my research, talking for a long time with Doni and Emerson, who spoke so very highly of Roma and the tight-knit happy team spirit. That is very important for me.

"I follow Serie A and it is very entertaining. Roma are among the favourites for the Scudetto and I cannot wait to help my teammates achieve that. I do feel the responsibility on my shoulders, but I told Real I wanted Roma."
