Roma coach Claudio Ranieri doesn't want his players to relax after their superb turnaround.

The Giallorossi were in the relegation zone when he took over from Luciano Spalletti, but go into this weekend just one point off joint third-placed Juventus and Napoli.

“I think we have had a positive first half of the season, especially as the situation has improved considerably since I arrived and there is a good rapport with the squad,” said Ranieri.

“Now the second half of the campaign is decisive. We will run into many difficulties and must know how to overcome them all.”
