Cholevas weighs in on Scudetto prospects

After an important contribution in assisting Francesco Totti last weekend in the derby against Lazio, Josè Cholevas weighed in on his experience with AS Roma so far by talking to Sky Sports.

Speaking about the captain Totti, Cholevas said: “It was natural for me to put that cross in for Francesco; the captain is  fantastic. I’ve known him for a long time but it was only when we played together did I realise how good he was”.

Cholevas also shared some thoughts on his time with Roma so far, commenting: “I struggled at the start because of some injuries, but now I am very well and I’m not limiting myself”.

Finally, he explained his thoughts on the scudetto race so far: “Scudetto? I do not want to talk about it, I prefer to deal in the facts. Juventus still have a wide gap above us, and also we have been forced to change much, we had to deal with several absences, while they always play with them. So I think they have an advantage over us in the title race , but we will try to deal with the league better”.
