In The Hat | Roberto Pereyra
Who has been the most important person in your career?
It’s hard to pick one person, but my family have been very important for me.
If you could only live in one place for the rest of your life, where would it be?
There’s two places - either Tucumán or Miami. Tucumán is my birthplace and I’ve been to Miami many times on vacation, so either would be great.
World Cup Final, penalty-shootout, are you taking one?
Yes - I’ll put my hand up for sure, but I’m not going to tell you where I’m putting it!
Are you afraid of heights? Or what are you afraid of?
I’m not afraid of heights, but I am afraid of Valon Behrami!
If you were an animal, what would you be?
A black panther.
Best set-piece taker you’ve played alongside?
That’s an easy one – Andrea Pirlo. I played with him at Juventus, and he has a wonderful ability from set-piece situations.
Which player would you most like to play alongside?
There’s no-one I would like to play alongside in particular, but I would love to play with Pirlo again!
What’s the longest time you’ve gone without sleep?
I’ve driven from Tucumán to Buenos Aires overnight before and that takes over 10 hours!
Who has the worst taste in music?
Étienne Capoue – he’s the main one who puts music on, so I’m not too sure about anyone else!
Who’s the funniest in the changing room?
I laugh a lot with Zúňiga – we both played in Italy and so we’d met beforehand, but now I see him every day I realise how funny he is!
