Ignacio Piatti is being backed for big success with Montreal Impact.

The former San Lorenzo striker has joined the MLS club from San Lorenzo.

"He'll do something important for this club," fellow DP Marco Di Vaio told reporters. "I think we've made a good transfer with him. He can do something important. He's shown he's got personality. He chose No. 10, and everyone in Montreal's been waiting for a No. 10."

Replied Piatti: "I'm really quiet. I chose No. 10 because I like it, and it's one that I've never worn."

He added: "I 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."
