After lifting the Super Cup last night, Panucci said: "I always sleep calmly. For all the years I have been here, many players have come to threaten my position, but there's never been any problem for me.

"Cicinho isn't playing for Real Madrid and wants to come to Roma, but we'll see if he has a place here."

On the victory last night, Panucci added: "If we continue to run and fight during games, then more success will come. If we begin boasting, we risk losing our edge."
