Mauro Rosales is looking forward to kick-starting his career after sealing a move from Ajax to River Plate.
The forward has enjoyed a productive spell in Amsterdam, but has opted to return to his native land after two-and-a-half years in Holland and he is looking forward to the new challenge.
"It is the best club in the country; every little boy in Argentina wants to play there," Rosales told Ajax's website. "I have heard good things about the club from players of the national team.
"River Plate is a lot like Ajax in that respect. That's why I am going back; I could not pass this up.''
Rosales is hopeful of making a return to Europe at some stage in the future.
"I hope to get another chance with a European club after River Plate," he added. "In Spain, Italy or maybe Holland.''
