On the run up to the Coppa Italia match between Roma and Lazio, Claudio Ranieri said in a press conference: "Vucinic? He had a tantrum, that's it. He will stay at Roma 100%".
On the match: "This is a real derby, we do care of Coppa Italia and we'll do everything to win the match. I do want to win, I don't care what Lazio do. Our group is all very motivated. The derby is a kind of match in which the coach doesn't have to speak a lot. They are all motivated, they feel the fans' enthusiasm. How have I prepared the match? Like always, we prepared everything even the penalties. The favourite? There is no favourite in a derby".
