Coach Zdenek Zeman thinks that his Roma side are still Scudetto candidates, captain Francesco Totti has claimed.
Despite sitting sixth in the standings and being nine points behind leaders Juventus, the title is still a target for the 4-3-3 tactician.
“Zeman really believes in the Scudetto,” the veteran stated even though the Giallorossi have already lost five of their first 15 games this term.
Roma’s form has been inconsistent, but they came from a goal down to beat Siena on Sunday – their third win in a row.
“We stayed united after falling behind,” the 2006 World Cup winner added. “We reacted like a great team would.”
Roma face Fiorentina next weekend, before ending the first half of the season with matches versus Chievo, Milan and Napoli.
