Claudio Ranieri speaks after his interim appointment at AS Roma

Claudio Ranieri has said that he is pleased to make a comeback with AS Roma with whom he has plenty of history from his childhood days. The Italian tactician was appointed by the Giallorossi as the interim head coach earlier in the week after they took the decision to sack Eusebio Di Francesco following the club’s Champions League exit at the hands of Porto.

Speaking to Gianluca di Marzio, Ranieri spoke positively about his return to the Giallorossi and stated the club’s ambition to return to the Champions League next term, he said: “This a special but delicate moment - Roma's success will be decided over the next 12 match days, in which we will see if we can return to the Champions League. What do I ask of the fans? Stay close to the players because in the end, us fans are the ones who really suffer.
