Burdisso: Roma must keep winning

Roma defender Nicolas Burdisso has told his teammates that they must keep winning if they are to have a hope of qualifying for the Champions League.

Sunday's 2-0 win over Lazio in the derby was a step in that direction, but Roma still need to make up four points on Udinese.

"It was a great satisfaction to win this derby, and even more beautiful to have won five in a row," Burdisso said.

"Our captain was great, but I want to underline the fact it was the victory of the entire team.

"Roma have given an important message to the League and it's a demonstration the we are always there to do better, to fight.

"We won't give up.

"They said that I played well? I am always ready to play when the Coach wants.

"For me playing centre-back or full-back doesn't change a lot. I am always at the Coach's service.

"It will be a difficult game against Fiorentina and we'll go to Florence to win," he concluded.
