Pjanic: Roma heading in right direction

The Bosnia-Herzegovina international is delighted with his side's recent form and claims their run of victories has earned the respect of other Serie A clubs
Miralem Pjanic believes Roma's improved performances over the past few weeks serves as evidence that the club is "heading in the right direction".

The Giallorossi initially struggled to find their best form, but they have climbed to fifth spot in the Serie A table after collecting maximum points from their last four games, while also booking their place in the quarter-finals of the Coppa Italia.

"We are satisfied with what we have done so far and must keep this up. We have two more games before Christmas and have to remain focused," the former Olympique Lyonnais star was quoted as saying by Gazzetta dello Sport.

He added, "Winning games helps you to win even more. We are heading in the right direction and the other teams will start fearing us a bit.

"We respect our opponents, but we're confident that we're on the right track."

Roma resumes Serie A action away to Chievo on Sunday.
