Cicinho rules out leaving Roma to return home

Roma right-back Cicinho has denied speculation he is seeking a return to Brazil and insists his wish is to remain in the Italian capital.

Cicinho, who is a reported target of Barcelona, is under contract with the Eternal City giants for a further three seasons.

Reports in the Brazilian media claimed the 29-year-old's priority was to move back to South America.

However, Cicinho said to Corriere dello Sport: "I have never stated to anyone, not even to Roma, any wish to return to Brazil.

"I am very happy at Roma and I am delighted at how my career is going. I've been five years in Europe and I have no problems whatsoever.

"At this time my focus is on returning to play with the Roma jersey.''

Cicinho joined Roma from Real Madrid two years ago.
