Roma the best in Italy, says Candela

Struggling Roma have the best squad of players in Serie A, insists former Stadio Olimpico idol Vincent Candela.

Roma, who are considered as outsiders for the championship, are sixth in the standings – a massive 12 points behind leaders Juventus. If you are looking for a site where to bet on Roma you can click here for online betting.

But Candela, a member of their Scudetto winning side of 2001, is adamant that the club have the players needed to succeed.

“Roma, in my opinion, have the strongest squad in the championship,” the former French international told Radio Audax on Tuesday.

“I don’t see sides of that level. Unfortunately, the Giallorossi have dropped points in the first half of the season and are behind in the table.

“I consider Juventus to be an excellent side, but a side who I believe to be fully within the reach of Roma.”

The capital outfit hired a new Coach in the summer when Zdenek Zeman was convinced to return to Rome following his success in Serie B at Pescara.

However, the team has proved to be inconsistent after winning eight and losing six of their last 14 games.

Roma, who lost 4-1 at Napoli on Sunday, are the Division’s top scorers with 43 strikes, but only Cagliari and Pescara (35) have conceded more goals than La Magica’s 33.
