De Rossi on the attack

Roma talisman Daniele De Rossi has hailed Marco Borriello and his fellow Giallorossi strikers. "Perhaps no one is as good as us in attack."

The midfielder made the claim after Borriello, signed from Milan just before the transfer window closed, scored his fifth League goal of the campaign against Fiorentina in midweek.

"The way Borriello has settled in the Giallorossi shirt is mad," noted the future capital captain. "But I expected as much because I have known him for a long time.

"He makes his presence felt in the penalty area and he is a true striker, but it would be wrong to not mention the other forwards.

"We have a great attack, one that perhaps no one else has at their disposal. And don't forget the likes of Stefano Okaka, Adriano and Aleandro Rosi."

Roma's attack also boasts veteran striker Francesco Totti, Julio Baptista and Mirko Vucnic.

Despite De Rossi's claims, Juventus, Milan, Napoli and Palermo have outscored the Giallorossi in Serie A so far this term.

Vucinic, the only other forward who has netted in the League, has also only scored three Serie A goals in 2010-11.

Roma travel to Juventus on Saturday. The Old Lady are the League's most prolific with 22 goals scored in 11 games.
