AS Roma can win the Scudetto, insists midfielder Kevin Strootman.

Strootman broke ranks in an interview with Sky Sport Italia and made a declaration of intent.

"Juventus remain the favourites for the Scudetto, but Roma are there too. I was so impressed by the way we celebrated the win at Sampdoria last night, all together including the kit staff.

"Coach Rudi Garcia came in and improved everything that wasn't working. We've got great players here, as Miralem Pjanic is a real talent and Daniele De Rossi knows how to do everything."
