Miralem Pjanic reassured fans “nothing is finished” for the Scudetto race, but his Roma contract renewal is “certain.”
The Bosnian midfielder found the net in today’s 4-2 victory over Parma, a game that was rained off on February 2.
“Was it the perfect birthday? Yes, especially as it is also my mother’s birthday, so I dedicate it to her,” he told Sky Sport Italia.
This result took Roma nine points clear of third-placed Napoli and closed the gap on leaders Juventus to just eight points.
“The Champions League place isn’t secure yet, as there are still 21 points up for grabs. We will aim as high as possible. We know Napoli are having a great campaign, but we want to do our best.
“The Scudetto? Nothing is finished yet, we are professionals and want to fight to the end, get as many points as possible and then see what happens. This team is ambitious and we won’t give up.”
Pjanic has been a key figure for the Giallorossi and reassured fans he will sign a contract extension.
“It will certainly happen, but I don’t know when. The club knows more than I do. The Coach knows I am concentrated on the team and give my all.
“We’ll talk it over, as contracts are not sorted out quickly. I am happy here, then we’ll see.”
