AS Roma midfielder Daniele de Rossi has heaped praise on young teammate Federico Viviani.

Viviani saw action for their 1-1 draw with Juventus.

"He played great," De Rossi said. "I consider him as the youngster who is best prepared to play in the first team.

"He has time in front of him and I would bet on him - also in the immediate future. Obviously my opinion doesn't matter, it is the Coach who decides, but I like him."
