Massimiliano Allegri has stated the revitalised Roma are very much in the title race.
The capital club recorded a confident 4-1 win over Fiorentina and closed the gap between them and Juventus to five points.
Roma have won all seven matches since losing in January and Allegri is not surprised since Rudi Garcia became head coach.
“It’s not surprising at all because Roma are a high-quality team and are still one of the candidates to win the Scudetto,” he told reporters.
“The win we had against Roma was crucial, as it allows us to be five points clear of them with a game in hand.
“It won’t be easy and we must either maintain this three-point gap or even increase it over the upcoming mini-tournament of 11 rounds.
“All we have to focus on right now is winning, as that will guarantee we are at least three points clear of Napoli.”
