Mazzone: ‘Ranieri has what it takes’

Roma legend Carlo Mazzone believes caretaker manager Claudio Ranieri “has everything it takes to bring this team to fourth place.”

The Giallorossi are currently in fifth, four points adrift of fourth-placed Milan and the Champions League spots.

“I hope that Roma can recover soon, as I continue to follow their progress with affection, purely as a fan,” former Coach Mazzone told Radio Centro Suono Sport.

“Ranieri was my player, one of my lads, and has everything it takes to bring this Roma team to fourth place.”

Today is Mazzone’s 82nd birthday and, like Ranieri, he was born and bred a Roma supporter.

“I thank the Romanisti for all their well wishes I’ve received today and for the fond memories they still hold of me.”
