De Rossi: 'Title not easy for Roma'

Daniele De Rossi will not disguise Roma’s ambitions this season. “We have to target the Scudetto, but it’s not as easy as people think.”

The Giallorossi broke club records in 2013-14, but still finished behind Juventus in the Serie A table.

Now that they have reinforced and the Turin giants lost Coach Antonio Conte, does this make Roma the favourites?

“This year for the first time I will say we have to target the Scudetto, but targeting is not the same as achieving and it’s not as easy as people think,” De Rossi told Roma Channel.

“From what I hear people seem to say Inter are weak and Juve without Conte are an amateur team.

“On top of that, Romanisti might make fun of Lazio, but they have constructed a good squad, while Fiorentina recovered two important players like Giuseppe Rossi and Mario Gomez.

“Our objective is the Scudetto, but it won’t be easy.”

De Rossi was speaking after Roma’s 2-0 defeat to Inter in the International Champions Cup.
