Roma coach Claudio Ranieri has taken a swipe at the antics of Inter Milan counterpart Jose Mourinho.

The Special One has been deferred to the Disciplinary Commission after suggesting the Giallorossi could pay Siena to battle it out with Inter in the final round.

"This is not the kind of football I like. I'm different, as I like respect and I give respect," said Ranieri.

"It's too easy to motivate a squad by creating a siege mentality and feeling under attack from everyone.

"Sport is an important vehicle for Italian society. Behaving like this is launching ticking time bombs. I am a man of sport and I like football.

"Is Mourinho a phenomenon? It is the media that gives him that aura. For me he is a good Coach and I won't add anything more."
