The Brazilian insists he never turned down Parma earlier this month.
â€śI want to clarify straight away that I didnâ€™t refuse to join Parma,â€ť the South American commented. â€śIâ€™m happy to be here and I want to show everyone my worth.â€ť
The deal to take the wing-back to the Gialloblu looked to have collapsed earlier this week, but the 25-year-old will now end the campaign with their No 2 shirt on his back.
â€śI chose Parma because they are a great team and Iâ€™m at the complete disposal of the Coach,â€ť the right-sided player added.
â€śI can play in a four-man defence or in midfield if a three-man defence is used. I like to attack and I want to enjoy myself.â€ť
