Simone Perrotta says AS Roma risk "total failure" if they do not qualify for Europe this season.

Roma are again struggling to finish in the European places this term.

"If we don't get into Europe this season either then it will be a total failure because this squad has crazy qualities," said Perrotta.

"Finishing third would be the maximum for us, but the Europa League would be a good objective too when you consider where we were a little while ago."
