Ranieri: 'Not real racism in stadiums'

Roma Coach Claudio Ranieri claims racist abuse in Italian stadiums “is not real racism, or at least it’s only a very small part of it.”

The debate continues in Italy over how to deal with racist jeers from fans, but former Chelsea and Leicester City manager Ranieri does not see it as a big problem.

“The racism you hear in stadiums is just something very silly to mock, in a very, very stupid way, a lad whose skin colour is not as light,” Ranieri told La Gazzetta dello Sport in a filmed interview.

Roma fight Monaco for Cragno

Roma are reportedly the favourites to sign Alessio Cragno, although Monaco are also interested in the Cagliari goalkeeper.

He turns 25 next month and has been one of the most consistently impressive shot-stoppers in Serie A this season.

According to Tuttosport, Roma and Monaco are prepared to duel on the transfer market for his signature this summer.

The Giallorossi are seemingly ahead, partly because they are offering him a five-year contract, but also as these clubs have already done business.
