Benatia: “We Are Not Favorites For The Title”


Mehdi Benatia spoke to Sky Sports today and was asked about Roma and their chances for the Scudetto.

“The past three years Juve is the strongest team in Italy. They have a group of quality, a full roster, they do well in the Champions League. Juve put us in a difficult position because they are a great team. We are not favorites for the title, we have to go back to Europe because it is the main objective. If possible, we will do more but Juventus and Napoli are quality teams and we have to fight to the end with them.”

He continued, “A few days ago I had a pain in my calf from a blow received 15 days ago. Unfortunately I had to replay three days later against Torino and I did not finish the match. I’m recovering slowly, it is a blow that makes me suffer enough. I hope that the weekend helps me so I can return on Tuesday. Sure to play against Cagliari? do not know. Today I have a bother, I’m doing everything I can to be available as soon as possible. I hope against Cagliari everything will be past.”
