Di Benedetto targets Roma Scudetto next season

New AS Roma owner Thomas di Benedetto is targeting the Scudetto next season. The American businessman's group completed their takeover of Roma this week.

"I love Rome, it's one of the most wonderful and well-known cities in the world, with architecture built over 2000 years ago," he told TG1 and Mediaset news.

"Roma are a great squad and the passion of their supporters is second to none. I tell the fans, Forza Roma!

"At the moment Roma are a Princess and we want to make her into a Queen. In reality, we'd like to win the Scudetto next season. The objective is clear: win the title as soon as possible."

Di Benedetto is expected to make sweeping changes to the club over the summer, but noted there would still be a Giallorossi core.

"There are many players who impress me and we are already working on them, but our basic model of the team is already here. It's Francesco Totti and his extraordinary career. He's a magician.

"Vincenzo Montella is doing a great job. The situation was very difficult and it's clear he has a great rapport with the players. He managed to remove that black cloud that was holding the team down."
