"I have more work to do in order reach my best form, but at the least I will be available,” he is quoted as saying by ForzaRoma.info.
The Chilean also took the opportunity to express his thanks for all the support he has received since the tragic events that have rocked his homeland.

“My country is shocked by the tragedy but for me, living in Rome, it is difficult to understand the magnitude of the situation.”
The 30-year-old concluded by saying he hasn’t really been able to gauge the full scope of the tragedy yet and that he will be offering help to the victims.
