It all seemed to be falling apart for the Nerazzurri in recent weeks, as the Scudetto party was postponed by a derby defeat and 2-2 draw with Siena.
"The squad answered its critics. After the derby everyone became Siena fans, then after that game they all wanted Roma to win the Scudetto, but we are the ones celebrating right now, yet again," grinned Zanetti.
"Over the past two weeks absolutely everything has been dragged out to throw us off. One must respect the two teams who fought for this title and Roma had a great campaign."
