Claudio Ranieri: Roma Are Like Inter

The Lupi coach has heaped high praise on the team...
Roma are just like Inter according to the Lupi's highly motivated coach Claudio Ranieri, who reckons his side have learned lessons from Jose Mourinho.

The 2-1 win over Siena saw Ranieri's men catch second-placed Milan as the dominance in the red and yellow half of the capital continues. He feels his side have learned plenty from the league leaders, who are eight points ahead of them.

Mental strength, motivation, belief and fighting spirit are the order of the day at Trigoria.

"We had to start from the beginning when I arrived, now the team is well and fighting," he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"We always have to believe because Inter have got us used to incredible comebacks.

"We have to have the character and always give everything on the pitch. I told the players to forget about playing well, but to always remember how to combat."
