Juan Intends To Stay At Roma

The player has no desire to move away from the Italian capital...
Brazil defender Juan has revealed that he intends to see out his contract with AS Roma and has no intention of leaving the Giallorossi any time soon.

The 31-year-old joined Roma from Bayer Leverkusen in 2007 and had a very successful season under coach Claudio Ranieri in 2009-10, carrying his form over the 2010 World Cup with the Selecao.

"With Roma I have three more years left on my contract. I'm very well there and very happy. This past season I played in 70-80 per cent of the fixtures and the results are evident even now," he told the press, according to Il Corriere dello Sport.

Meanwhile, he touched on Brazil's next challenge, a quarter-final clash against the Netherlands that promises to be a spectacular affair.

"The Netherlands aren't only [Arjen] Robben, a player who is very strong, but for him there won't be any special attention [over anyone else on the Dutch team]. They have many good attacking players and they are like us in that they always try to play football and focus on offence," he revealed.

"[Coach] Dunga is very demanding in terms of covering the scoring midfielders and strikers. Our whole team is capable of defending, for them it will be difficult to score goals."
