Pereira hoping for Sao Paulo success

21 January 2014 11:18

Alvaro Pereira is hoping to become the latest Uruguayan to make an impact at Sao Paulo, having signed on loan from Inter on Monday.

The 28-year-old agreed an 18-month switch after failing to make an impact since arriving at San Siro from Porto in the 2012 close-season.

And, with one eye on the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Pereira is hoping he can hit the ground running at Morumbi, where his international captain Diego Lugano enjoyed a successful three-year stint before heading to Europe.

Former Uruguay internationals Pablo Forlan, Pedro Rocha and Dario Pereyra also sent time with the club, winning seven state titles and two Serie A crowns between them, with Pereira determined to emulate their achievements.

"It is a great pleasure and a huge challenge to play for Sao Paulo," he said. "I want to keep up the tradition of successful Uruguayan players here.

"It's a dream come true to play for one of the biggest clubs in the world."

Pereira had made just seven appearances in all competitions for Inter this season.
