Ignacio Piatti is being backed for big success with Montreal Impact.
The former San Lorenzo striker has joined the MLS club from San Lorenzo.
‚ÄúHe‚Äôll do something important for this club,‚ÄĚ fellow DP Marco Di Vaio told reporters. ‚ÄúI think we‚Äôve made a good transfer with him. He can do something important. He‚Äôs shown he‚Äôs got personality. He chose No. 10, and everyone in Montreal‚Äôs been waiting for a No. 10.‚ÄĚ
Replied Piatti: ‚ÄúI‚Äôm really quiet. I chose No. 10 because I like it, and it‚Äôs one that I‚Äôve never worn.‚ÄĚ
He added: ‚ÄúI like the league, and I thank the club for allowing me to play here and to [former Impact sporting director] Nick De Santis who came to see me more than a year ago.‚ÄĚ
