thumbnail Hello,

The Italy international marked his return to action by scoring the winner against Fiorentina on Sunday and is determined to help the Giallorossi fight for the Scudetto

Mattia Destro says Roma are ready to push Juventus to the limit in the race for this year's Serie A title.

After losing top spot with a run of four successive draws, the capital club returned to winning ways with a 2-1 victory over Fiorentina on Sunday courtesy of their 22-year-old forward.

Destro is delighted to be back in the Giallorossi fold after a lengthy spell on the sidelines with a knee injury and is determined to help Roma pip the Bianconeri to the Scudetto.

"We will never stop fighting," the Italy international told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"We will always do our part, sacrificing ourselves until the end. We are a great team, we will prove it at AC Milan next week."

Destro, meanwhile, dedicated his strike to everyone who helped him through his five-month injury lay-off.

"Scoring was wonderful," the striker admitted. "But I don't think it was anything special; I was just very happy to be back.

"Now I've put it all behind me. The goal is dedicated to all those who stood by me."

Roma's win over Fiorentina saw them draw to within three points of Juventus ahead of next Monday's trip to San Siro.
