Former Cruzeiro star Kerlon is delighted with his move to Chievo Verona.

"I am happy to have arrived in Italy and to have the opportunity to play in Serie A," he enthused at his presentation.

"I am grateful to Chievo for this and I look forward to testing myself, even if I need to show some patience.

"I am still recovering from a knee injury and I will need at least two or three more weeks to recover fully.

"My aim is to have a great season with Chievo and to help them avoid relegation."
