Perotti committed to Roma

Diego Perotti has pledged his commitment to Roma after the ‘mess’ his father caused with comments about a return to Boca Juniors.

Perotti Sr claimed towards the end of last year that the winger would ‘love’ to join Boca, where he began his career.

The Argentine, however, insists he will honour the two years left on his contract with the Giallorossi.

“My father made a mess and Roma got angry,” he told TyC Sports.

“I still have two years left on my contract here. For now I’m not going back to Argentina.

The 30-year-old surpassed 100 appearances for the Lupi earlier in the season, despite an injury-hit campaign.
