AS Roma defender Dodo is eager to prove his worth.

Dodo has managed just seven appearances this season.

"Since I've been in Rome my life has changed a lot," he told Roma Channel. "It is very different in Brazil.

"I had some difficulty in the beginning, but now everything is a lot easier for me.

"A lot of fans stop me on the street and ask me when I will play.

"I really want to play. I am just looking forward to putting on a display and showing my worth."
