Roma coach Aurelio Andreazzoli says that focusing on short-term, realistic targets is the only way he can take the club forward this season.

Roma coach Aurelio Andreazzoli has declared that supporters need to be realistic about what the club can achieve this season.

The Lupi are seven points off Champions League qualification following a 1-1 draw with Udinese last weekend.

Andreazzoli insists that his side can only qualify for Europe with complete focus on each match, starting with Parma this evening.

He told Astroma.it: "People wouldn't take me very seriously if I started talking about the Champions League at the moment.

"There are lots of teams ahead of us and I prefer not to talk about it. And if I start talking about other targets that are considered less important I could be misinterpreted and seen as someone who's happy to settle for less.

"I prefer to take things one day at a time, you can't make calculations about the future. We must pull out all the stops tomorrow so that we can get the three points and meet our fans' expectations."

The 59-year-old has won three of his five matches in charge at the Stadio Olimpico since taking temporary charge following the sacking of Zdenek Zeman last month.
