Perotti: Roma need to keep winning

Roma winger Diego Perotti is pleased with the team's form but insists they haven't achieved anything yet.

The Giallorossi have been in excellent form in the Serie A recently, having lost only once in their last eight games, against leaders Juventus, while winning seven.

The run of victories has seen Roma consolidate second position behind the Bianconeri, but Perotti has urged his teammates to maintain their focus and keep the wins coming.

"We racked up loads of wins last term and we got to a point where we weren't losing any but we still couldn't finish second or first," he told Roma Radio.

"Winning five or six in a row is not enough – you have to win them all. Or at least try to. Winning must become a habit. You can't afford to relax at all. When you win a game on Sunday you have to think about playing the same way on Wednesday against whoever it is you have to play. 

"If you think about nothing but winning it gives you the edge and makes it easier to win the title or reach a cup final.

"You can't settle for winning 10 or 12 – you have to win them all. We're playing well at the moment but we're still second. We've achieved nothing. And even if we were first, we'd still have achieved nothing. We have the league, we have Cesena in the Coppa Italia and then Villarreal. There's a long way to go. We just have to keep on winning.”
