Claudio Ranieri admits he is enjoying his managerial reign at Roma ahead of their crucial Serie A clash with Inter on Saturday.

AS Roma are still very much in the mix to secure a Champions League ticket having secured back to back wins.

The Roma based club are just a point adrift fourth-placed Milan, a win against fellow top-four rivals Inter Milan will further strengthen their resolve to secure another European football.

Maurizio Sarri and Antonio Conte have recently been linked with Ranieri’s position, however, the former Leicester City boss is enjoying his reign at the club.

“Being a fan and coaching your team makes you proud beyond all limits,” the Coach said at a Press conference via Football Italia.

“I’m satisfied with my career, which isn’t over yet. I don’t establish plans for the future. We’re the last to know these things.

“I’m thinking of doing my bit this season, but it depends on what the President wants to do and what we’ll do at the end of the season.

“This month-and-a-half has made things clearer. For the players, they understand me better and vice versa.

“It’s natural that our two wins have given us huge self-esteem, but not conceding goals and suffering to win them have given us more conviction.

“If there was a setback it wouldn’t change our mood, but a positive result could give us a considerable boost.

“Doing well would mean a lot, while losing wouldn’t change our determination to keep fighting for every ball, sweating and showing the fans that we’ll get to the end of the season with our heads held high.”
