Roma coach Ranieri proud to be in charge of hometown team

AS Roma boss Claudio Ranieri is delighted to be working for his hometown club.

Ranieri has worked in Serie A, La Liga and the Premier League, but it is special to be on the bench of his beloved Roma.

He said: "You carry Rome and your Roman identity within you. The wonderful thing is that, having travelled a great deal, you always have reference points and see new places, but there really is no place like home.

"If you are Roman, then that is an even stronger bond. I believe everyone is proud of their home town, but perhaps we Romans take it too far! Then again those are our characteristics and what makes us the people that we are."
