Boniek: Roma need Euro success to attract bigger names

Former AS Roma star Zbigniew Boniek says success in Europe is key to the club attracting top players.

Roma missed out on the Champions League knockout round this season after defeat to Manchester City last week.

"I've seen many great things from Roma recently, and less good things such as the game against City," Boniek told Radio Centro Suono.

"Rome played poorly in that game, they were too sloppy after a very good first 20 minutes.

"They missed an opportunity to go through, because City were without a lot of key players, Roma could have beaten them.

"It's a shame, because Roma need to be playing in the Champions League, but for now there's the Europa League which is still a major tournament.

"Roma need to win in Europe to attract great players.

"An ambitious and strong team with a deep squad like Roma's should aim to win everything."
