Perth Glory CEO on De Silva: He’s perfect for Italian football

CEO of Australian club Perth Glory, Jason Brewer, spoke today to regarding Roma’s newly acquired Daniel De Silva, who will remain at Perth on loan.

De Silva…
“He had demands in the Premier League and La Liga, but he visited Roma in March and met with the club and was immediately hooked. I think he’s perfect for Italian football, he’s a rough talent with a lot of potential that Roma could slowly nurture.”

Can you describe the player?
“He’s a number 10 — very creative with great football instincts and is able to perfectly move in-between the lines. He made a difference at the U-17 World Cup and scored a wonderful goal. His best feature, I think, is his ability to read the game, he’s really a great talent. He’s our pride, he was the youngest (player) to debut at Perth Glory, now with the Italian schooling he can improve and be even better.”
