Florenzi Roma keen on UCL qualification

first_imgAlessandro Florenzi admits Roma’s main objective for the rest of the season is to secure Champions League qualification.Roma enjoyed last season’s Champions League campaign after reaching the semi-finals and Florenzi revealed the club wants to go one better this season.“We finished 2018 with the right impression,” the right-back disclosed via Football Italia.“Now we need more continuity and positive results. We know we can and must do better. We must try to find ourselves as a group, even if the group has always been the base from where we’ve picked up again.“The group can save you from any situation, so continuing to win altogether must be our objective, also because games aren’t won alone.“The Coppa Italia could be a very important objective for Roma. We mustn’t take dreams out of our minds.Chris Smalling open to a permanent AS Roma deal Andrew Smyth – September 6, 2019 Chris Smalling can “definitely see a longer-term future” for himself at AS Roma should things work out on his loan spell from Manchester United.“Even if we know Serie A is impossible, we have another objective, which is the Champions League.“I’m not saying it’s a utopia, but it would really be a dream to retrace what we did last season and improve on it, even if it won’t be easy.“I don’t think we lack malice. Sometimes we haven’t been clinical enough. I’m not just talking about the strikers but rather everyone, myself included.“We’re lacking a bit in this regard, similar to how we’re lacking in desire to not concede goals.“I’m not just talking about the defenders but rather the whole team. These are things that we had last season and we have to find them again.”last_img
