Roma coach Claudio Ranieri says Ghana midfielder Ahmed Barusso remains in his plans.

Roma coach Claudio Ranieri says Ghana midfielder Ahmed Barusso remains in his plans.

Barusso is currently playing on-loan at Brescia and has struggled to make an impact at Roma since his arrival last year.

But Ranieri told BBC Sport: "Barusso is a player that I like.

"This is a very physically strong midfielder, who has left before I arrived so I could not do anything to stop him. Like all the other boys out on loan, there is a good opportunity to come back to Roma."
