Ranieri has led Roma into the top four as Juve tumbled out of the Champions League places after defeat to Chievo.
"We took different paths, but now I am happily on the Roma bench," smiled the Giallorossi Coach. "I do not need to take revenge for anything. I know that I worked well at Juve and now I am in my city with the club I have always supported."
"We needed a player like Toni, someone who was strong in the air and today he had a great performance, as did the whole team. It was a good game against a Genoa side that always tried to play. Physically we are in good shape and it shows.
"I had to say when I took over that Roma should set beautiful football aside, as at that moment we needed to focus on a change of mentality and approach. I knew the entertainment would come eventually. The important thing now is that we reach the Champions League. There's a long way to go yet and there are many dangers.
"It's still a regret that we threw away that 2-0 lead at Cagliari."
