'Roma still worth Scudetto'

Veteran Mirko Vucinic believes Roma 'will be fighting for the Scudetto' even after losing Miralem Pjanic to Juventus.

The loss of what many considered to be the Giallorossi's best player to their strongest rivals suggests that the Old Lady no longer has any rivals in Serie A.

But the 32-year-old striker, who played for both teams, believes the league is still competitive.

“The Giallorossi will be fighting for the Scudetto,” Vucinic told Tuttosport. “Things improved under Spalletti already in the past championship.

“He's a guarantee as a Coach and his experience abroad made him even more complete. Now he seems to have greater variety in his tactical preparation.

“Francesco Totti? I'm very happy for him, he deserved his contract renewal. It was good to play by his side, he's a phenomenon.”

As he discussed individual players, Vucinic went on to mention Inter loanee Stevan Jovetic and Juventus' Paul Pogba.

“Stevan was hampered by his physical trouble, but his immense talent cannot be argued against. He'll vindicate himself next season.

“As for Pogba, we could tell right away that he was a champion. As a youngster he had character and some fantastic moves.

“I don't feel like I should give him any advice, all I can say is that not very many manage to become the star of Juventus.”

“My career? I'd like to close it with Lecce.”
