Seydou Keita confident of Roma success

AS Roma signing Seydou Keita is convinced of success this season.

Keita signed for Roma earlier this summer from Valencia.

"Roma is and has always been a big club," he told a Press conference. "They're on the back of a great season. I want to help the club to keep competing at the top

"Serie A is a major league and it's important for the club and me to be fighting for top spot.

"Yes, I've won a lot but I'll do everything I can for as long as my head and body hold up. It would be great to win a title here.

"I've got a one-year contract but I actually asked if I could focus on just one season.

"If things go well, both the club and I will be happy to extend my stay. A year is a long time - it's a daily battle over 9 months.

"It's tough to say what Roma will do. The club had a great season and we have an excellent squad which will be strengthened."
