Leandro Paredes believes they needed to show Napoli and Juventus they are still in the fight.
The 4-1 victory over Torino ensured they continued their form as well as their placing in Serie A, placing pressure on Juventus and Napoli in the process.
Speaking to Sky Sport Italia, Paredes stated their desire to continue to challenge these clubs for the top position in Serie A:
“We had to give a response to Napoli and Juventus. They all won this weekend and we couldn’t get this game wrong, so fortunately we got all three points,”
“Roma had to change the mentality and we are doing that, so we just need to stick to it now. On the goal the ball landed right in front of me and I managed to hit it well.
“I am improving, but I certainly need to do a lot better. I know that I have two midfield teammates who are doing very well, so I just hope to reach their level.”
Paredes looks to cement his spot in Spalletti’s starting eleven and is beginning to grow into his role.
This win is vital in terms of confidence as they take on Inter next week, who are also in good form under Pioli.
