This will be Claudio Ranieri’s debut on the Roma bench after Eusebio Di Francesco was sacked this week.
“A change of Coach does shake things up in a team, so we’ve got to be ready for them and have the right approach. They will try to change gear straight away to break off from this recent negative period,” the defender told Roma TV and Sky Sport Italia.
“Considering our results recently, we need to improve as a team in our defending and raise the concentration levels, focus on details to avoid conceding cheap goals.
“We try to attack, but also to maintain preventative marking so we’re ready for any counters. The real issue has been conceding avoidable goals.
“In a stadium like this, we especially need concentration and focus on the details to get any points.”
