Marcello Lippi says Roma's players and staff are wrong to moan about the mickey-taking of Manchester United wing dazzler Cristiano Ronaldo.

Reflecting on Ronaldo's goal scoring performance on Tuesday night, Lippi said: "I must admit, when I first saw him doing all those fakes, I thought he was trying it on, but I was then proved wrong.

"I soon realised that this is simply his way of playing. He means no disrespect to anyone, it's his way."
