AS Roma defender Federico Balzaretti admits there's "something missing" within the squad.

The 30-year-old has conceded that the Giallorossi are just some team-work short of a great side.

"There is still something missing that we need to make that leap," he told a Press conference. "We just need to make that one last step in order to become a real team.

"As soon as we do that, we can focus on challenging for the title - because this team has undoubted quality."
