Sunderland new Paraguayan midfielder Riveros, 27, is expected to dazzle from the beginning of his new career according to Quinny.
Bruce made him the first Summer transfer signing as he signed from Cruz Azul on a free transfer this week.
Quinn told the club's official website: 'Without wanting to put too much pressure on him, Cristian is a very talented player with fantastic ability on the ball. He will have been to the World Cup by the time he pulls on our shirt and hopefully, that will have gone well for him.
'He has his pal, Paulo, here as well and that should be a good help.
'Paulo came here cold, it was really the adventure of all adventures for him to come here and uproot his family.
'Paulo really feels like the north-east is his home now and he played a big part in persuading Cristian to come here.
'I can't wait to see Cristian have a go, and I hope the Sunderland fans take him to their hearts.
'He is a very committed player with good skill and a bit of craft. I think he will be made to feel very welcome here.'
Let's all hope and prey he turns out to be another brilliant spot by Bruce and impresses the Sunderland faithful from the off.
