Borriello: Roma can win the Scudetto

The 31-year-old is adamant that the Giallorossi can maintain their stunning start to the season, while revealing that he would like to stay at the Olimpico until at least 2017
Roma striker Marco Borriello believes that the capital club have enough quality to win the Scudetto this season.

The Giallorossi are unbeaten so far this season, having only dropped their first points of the campaign last weekend by drawing with Torino, and currently sit top of the table, three points ahead of Napoli and Juventus.

Consequently, Borriello is in no doubt that Rudi Garcia's men can defy the odds by claiming what would be only their fourth title - even if he remains extremely wary of the threat posed by two-time defending champions Juventus.

“Roma can win because we have a great team and great fans. But look out for Juve, they are strong,” Boriello told Gazetta dello Sport.

Borriello then reflected on his career thus far and spoke of his intention in seeing out his contract at the club, while at the same time lamenting the stop-start nature of his playing days.

“During my career, I could’ve given more, but it was not my fault. Sometimes I put a spoke in my wheels, but injury was a major factor,” the 31-year-old argued.

"The last two coaches [Luis Enrique and Zdenek Zeman] had different tactics, so I figured it was better to go away [on loan]. But then they were sacked and I won a championship [with Juve].

"What’s going to happen in the future? I think I'll stay until 2017."

Roma are currently preparing for their next league match, against Sassuolo at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday.
