'I'll pick Ancelotti up at the airport'

Claudio Ranieri is unfazed by Carlo Ancelotti's desire to coach Roma, so much so that he has offered to pick him up at the airport.

Ancelotti spoke again this week about his 'dream' to one day take charge of the team with whom he made his name as a player.

Speaking in anticipation of tomorrow night's clash with Fiorentina, Ranieri said: "I will go pick him up at the airport.

"I would be the first person to be happy."

When asked about his contract, which expires in June 2011, Ranieri said: "I don't like talking about these things.

"My mind is 100 per cent on tomorrow's game and it will always be that way.

"Rumours and contract have never dented my professionalism nor my desire."
