“Roma are a strong side and in September we did not expect them to be so good,” the defender told Sky Sport Italia.

“After seeing them in action, we recognised their quality. They have many strong players and it doesn’t matter who starts or comes off the bench, because our focus must be absolute.

“This is not yet a decisive match for the Scudetto, because we’re not even halfway through the season, but we do want to win in order to prove we are the best.”
