Zaniolo: 'Roma lack nothing'

Roma forward Nicolò Zaniolo claimed the Giallorossi can fight for the Scudetto this term. ‘We lack nothing’.

The Italy international has targeted a return from injury in April and said he will be back in time for Euro 2020, but he also spoke about the season so far and Roma’s possible battle at the top.

“We started very well, the team are strong and we lack nothing,” Zaniolo told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “The Championship is long and you never know.

“We will do our best.”

Coach Paulo Fonseca has helped Roma sit third in Serie A after 14 games and Zaniolo praised the Portuguese tactician.

“He is very loyal, he tells you things to your face,” the young attacker said, before he added that former hero Francesco Totti helped him after the injury setbacks.

“[Totti] was close to me after my injuries and suggested that I return calmly because there’s no one chasing me.”
