AS Roma coach Aurelio Andreazzoli has defended the spirit within his squad.

Reports have suggested a raft of rows this season inside the locker room.

Andreazzoli said: "Something happens in every place where there are interpersonal relationships, even in a family. But families don't go around telling people what happened in house. It's just the principle of good behaviour.

"It's really not good for the journalists to say who wants to hurt Roma or deserves to leave. I would gladly do without reading the papers, as people do not care about this club if they write things that aren't true. I am here to help the team and not to make a career. I work here 24 hours a day and am irritated by everything that annoys the team, including the behaviour of some players."
