Gandini: Roma must compete on all fronts

Roma chief executive Umberto Gandini is eager to see the Giallorossi compete for silverware in all three of the competitions in which they are engaged.

The Serie A remains a fan-favourite, with many remaining hopeful that Roma can catch up to Juventus, who have a seven-point lead.

However, with the do-or-die phase of the season kicking off, Gandini wants Roma to give it their all in the Europa League and Coppa Italia as well.

"We're in good form and we're not going to give up the chase," Gandini told Radio Rai. "Juventus are having a fantastic season and we're seven points behind but there are lots of games left to play. 

"We'll stay positive and keep pushing on – in the league and the other competitions we're in.”

He added: "Can't I have all three?! I think winning the Europa League is a harder and more prestigious achievement than many people make it out to be. Winning it would mean claiming a European trophy this club has never won before – nor any other Italian club for that matter.

"We want to challenge on all three fronts. We have the Coppa Italia semi-final, a two-legged tie against Villarreal and Juve to chase in the league. With all the big games coming up, it's a crucial phase of the season both for us and for them.”
