“For me, the Champions League is a good thought,” Rossi told TuttoMercatoWeb.
“That squad that I achieved that objective with was a group that was not programmed to reach that objective.
“This squad has made that jump in quality, this is a Champions League squad programmed for it and they have the desire.
“I think they have found a group where they can make a good impression.”
Lazio finished on the bottom of their Champions League group in 2007/08, winning just once in six games and obtaining only five points.
