In the summer of 2012, Ferraresso spent approximately a month training with Botev Plovdiv, receiving the approval of then manager Ferario Spasov. However, the "canaries" were unable to sign him, as with his transfer they would have exceeded the limit on non-EU players in the team.

In an interview for the Brazilian web magazine Medium in April 2018, Diego showed his desire to represent Bulgaria on international level and to play in the World cup with the team.
