Ranieri left in tears as Roma fans pay tribute to outgoing coach

The well-travelled tactician took over at Roma in their "moment of dire need" and the Stadio Olimpico was quick to pay homage in his final game.

Roma coach Claudio Ranieri was left visibly shaken by the outpouring of warmth from the stands during his last game in charge of the club he supported as a boy.
The former Roma player, who managed the club between 2009 and 2011, was in tears as the tifosi unfurled a banner that read: "Mr. Ranieri, in our moment of dire need, you have answered. Now, you receive the homage of your people."
