Marco Borriello Dismisses Rumours Of Player Unrest At Roma

Marco Borriello is aiming for Scudetto glory and insists he is happy at Roma...
Marco Borriello has dismissed reports of player unrest at Roma and believes they can continue to challenge for the Scudetto despite their recent 3-1 loss to Palermo.

The Giallorossi currently sit in seventh place in the standings, eight points behind current leaders Milan.

"I'm fine in Rome. I had a fantastic reception and have wonderful friends," he said during a presentation for the video game Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 (PES), according to Il Corriere dello Sport.

"There have been many ugly rumours that are absolutely not true. It's possible after a defeat, but these arguments do not actually exist."

"Roma remain a Scudetto challenger. We only took a wrong step."

Coach Claudio Ranieri has often shuffled the pack up front, even leaving out captain Francesco Totti on occasion in an effort to find the right mix of attackers.

"The four strikers? In PES I used them all, but on the real field it's different. We shouldn't complicate the life of the coach, who is doing very well," he concluded.

The 28-year-old has nine goals in 18 appearances in all competitions for Roma this season.
