Ranieri explains supporting Roma over Leicester

Former Leicester City and Roma boss Claudio Ranieri says there'll be no split loyalties for him on Thursday night.

Roma host the Foxes in the second-leg of their Europa Conference League semifinal with the score locked at 1-1.

Ranieri said, "Cheering brings me back to the child I was. I can't betray him.

"I would say they (Roma) have a 55 per cent chance, because this time there is the Olimpico effect.

"Can too much euphoria be a risk? No, if you have (Jose) Mourinho on the bench. Leicester away are less effective, I think they are in the last places in terms of performance."
