Alberto Aquilani admits this is a big season for him at Roma.

The Italy U21 midfield star said: "This is a decisive year in order to understand my future. I must try to have few injury problems, even if it does not depend on me.

"Roma must have a championship like last season, then perhaps we can succeed in achieving something more.

"I hope to prove my worth this season. My aim is to stay for life with Roma, but at the end of this season I will consider everything."
