(GSM) – Roma manager Claudio Ranieri coudln’t hide his anger when he was asked about the rumours that link Marcello Lippi with his post.

After defeat at Brescia, Ranieri took a swipe at the media and blasted reports Lippi is set to replace him as Roma coach.

“I have the same responsibility now as I did last season, when the team went from bottom of the table to missing the Scudetto by a point. Nothing has changed,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“This is a side that also with Luciano Spalletti after fighting for the Scudetto took a while to get into gear. It’s the same situation.

“In Italy people immediately go looking for a scapegoat. In sport there are difficult moments and this is one of them. The team fought hard tonight, so I’m happy. They have to continue fighting and they’ll find a way out.”

Yesterday, several Italian media claimed Ranieri would be dumped for former Italy boss Marcello Lippi.

“You make your own conclusions. Often the journalists know more about a situation than the tacticians. The newspapers wrote names and dates, so clearly they know too.

“I knew in Turin what was going on too, OK? Everyone knew it was Lippi.”
