Jeremy Menez insists he respects the decisions of Roma coach Claudio Ranieri.

The French midfielder has struggled to earn a start in Ranieri's plans.

But he says: “I am ready and working at making myself available to Ranieri.”

Asked to explain why he plays so little, the 22-year-old replied: “You'll have to ask Ranieri. Naturally I respect his choices.

“The objective remains second place, then we'll see. Anyway it's our job to fight on all fronts including the Coppa Italia and Europa League.”
