Juninho Pernambucano: Manchester United target Dedé is irreplaceable
Juninho, now 37, is delighted with the club's depth of squad and believes they can compete on all fronts with their current players.
"I will try my best with any of the players that Cristovão selects," said Juninho. "We have arrived at a situation in which only Dede is irreplaceable to the team.
"The rest of us can rotate and maintain the same level. We are able to play better because of this rotation."
Dedé has been heavily linked with a move to England or Italy in recent weeks, with recent performances once more leading to a link with Manchester United resurfacing.
