Nainggolan refuses to discuss Roma's Serie A chances

Updated: 

Star midfielder Radja Nainggolan refused to discuss Roma's chances of winning the Scudetto, calling on his team to remain focused.

Without Serie A glory since 2000-01, Roma find themselves fifth in the table and five points adrift of leaders Napoli after 11 games.

Eusebio Di Francesco's Roma - with nine wins so far - have a game in hand on Napoli but Belgium international Nainggolan does not want to talk about the title.

"I don't want to talk about the Scudetto," Nainggolan told Sky Sport Italia.

"We are on a good path, we need to stay focused."

After stunning Premier League titleholders Chelsea 3-0 in the Champions League last week, Roma defeated Fiorentina 4-2 on Sunday.

Nainggolan added: "Di Francesco makes everyone feel important, even those who play less give more because they know their chance will come.

"We are ready and we are showing we are all on the same page. You can see that."
