Ivan Marcano has confessed that his transfer to Roma was a mistake after returning to Porto. “I should never have left…”

Marcano only joined Roma last summer, being brought to the club by former sporting director Monchi, but made just 13 appearances and completed a move back to Porto on Thursday.

“I’m very happy to be back here and see again the people I know very well and with whom I spent so many moments,” the 32-year-old told the Portuguese side’s official website.

“I wanted to go back and Porto wanted me back. It was 50-50, although maybe I wanted it a bit more.

“It was something I thought about a long time ago: this is a club I probably should never have left.

“I’m finally here and I want to return the effort they made for me with lots of success.”
