Luciano Spalletti wants his players to use the Super Bowl for inspiration as Roma look to overhaul Serie A leaders Juventus.
Edin Dzeko scored twice in Roma’s 4-0 rout of Fiorentina on Tuesday, which helped the Italian capital club move into second in the table.
Roma are four points adrift of defending champions Juventus, who have a match in hand.
But after watching the New England Patriots overcome a 25-point deficit to beat the Atlanta Falcons 34-28 in NFL’s Super Bowl LI on Sunday, Spalletti has belief.
“We are having a great season, so are Juventus and Napoli,” Spalletti said via Mediaset Premium.
“It is our duty to believe to the end, as there’s this spell with many games that could create some surprises.
“Look what happened in the Super Bowl. We have to believe.”
