Douglas Maicon has thanked AS Roma for bringing him back to Italy.

The former Manchester City fullback made the move in the summer.

"I am very happy for my return to the Seleçao," he told A Bola.

"I have to thank Roma and Felipe Scolari, who allowed me to make this comeback. My objective now is to give my best until June so that I can be part of the World Cup expedition."
