AS Roma coach Claudio Ranieri blanked the post-match media conference after their 1-1 draw with FC Cluj.

Ranieri sent his No2 Christian Damiano in his stead.

“The important thing was to qualify, it was an important point and we got it,” said Damiano. “Are we a danger in the Champions League draw? I think so. In two games anything is possible and we are a strong side.

“Our reaction against Basel and then with Bayern Munich was excellent, but the essential element today was the result.”

After throwing away a 2-0 lead against Chievo on Saturday, Roma again conceded a late equaliser in Romania.

“Perhaps we do fumble leads a bit too much, which is rather the opposite of last season. We need a little more concentration.”
