Mexes: 'Roma superior to Juve'

Philippe Mexes maintains “Roma were superior to Juventus on the night” and deserved all three points.

The Giallorossi only managed a 1-1 draw at the Olimpico in Turin with Francesco Totti's penalty cancelling out a Vincenzo Iaquinta opener.

“Roma were superior to Juventus on the night. We conceded a goal that could've been avoided, but then gained confidence and took control,” said the defender.

“As for my own form, I have to thank my teammates, as without them I could not play like this.

“Daniele De Rossi is a great player and really helps out the defence, just like Nicolas Burdisso and Aleandro Rosi.”

The Lupi had a disastrous start to the season, but are right back in the top teams on recent results.

When asked if Roma could win the Scudetto this term, Mexes was cagey.

“We must forget the past and I am convinced that this season depends solely on us. We're right up there.”
