Pereira: If Inter win Scudetto I will cut off my ponytail

The Nerazzurri player explains that if they manage to win the Italian championship this season, then he will chop off his hair and is treating every game he plays in like a final
Alvaro Pereira has promised that he will cut off his ponytail if Inter win the Scudetto this season.

The Nerazzurri are currently sitting in second place in Serie A, four points adrift of leaders Juventus, and face Lazio this weekend.

And ahead of the clash with the Biancocelesti, the summer signing from Porto has revealed his burning desire for his new team this campaign.

“I want to win the Scudetto," he told Sky Sports Italia.

"I want to win the championship and achieve important goals in the New Year, and if we win the Scudetto, then I will cut off my ponytail.”

The Uruguay international has not only set his eye on domestic competitions, but is also targeting success in Europe as well.

He added: "Are we stronger than Juventus? I worry about my own team, not the others.

“And if you ask me about the Scudetto then I can tell you that we are working hard for this, the Europa League, for everything.

"Now Lazio are awaiting us and we have to think of each match as a final.”
