Benatia: ‘Roma will fight for Scudetto’

Juventus defender Medhi Benatia expects his old team Roma to “be there until the end” for the Scudetto.

The centre-back spent the 2013-14 season with the Giallorossi before leaving to join Bayern Munich.

After injuries limited his impact in Bavaria, the 29-year-old has returned to Serie A, joining the Bianconeri on loan.

“Roma look good,” Benatia told Sky.

“Roma are a great team in my opinion, they have a lot of quality and also a great Coach. [Luciano] Spalletti is very astute. I think Roma will be there until the end.

“After that it depends, there’s Inter who have had an interesting transfer campaign. Milan have taken [Vincenzo] Montella, who is a great Coach.”
