'Roma need humility and sacrifice'

Roma boss Claudio Ranieri believes his players need to be humble and to make sacrifices if they are to win the Scudetto this season.

The Lupi have managed to turn their season around after a dreadful start to the campaign and currently lie sixth ahead of tomorrow's match against Udinese.

"We have found ourselves again," Ranieri said. "I said this at the beginning of the season that it would depend on how much humility and sacrifice we put in, because we have seen the two faces of Roma, before and after."

Ranieri also said he isn't surprised at Inter's troubles under Rafa Benitez.

"I expected it because it's a different way of working and it takes time to adapt.

"It wasn't easy to propose yourself again as a team again after having won everything, then came the injuries.

"I expected it and I hoped for it. Otherwise it would have once again been like the recent years in the League. Instead I expected it this way and I hoped for it."
