With only one games left and with theri chances to reach Champions League being extremely slim, the focus at Roma is on Daniele De Rossi's last game at the Olimpico with the Giallorossi shirt. Coach Claudio Ranieri revealed that the midfielder will start on Sunday against Parma: "He will start and he will lead the side out, wearing his armband. -the coach said in the pre-match press conference - He deserves a standing ovation from the whole stadium. The game has to be a celebration and he has to play a great game. I hope the stadium will be overflowing with affection for him, for what he's given this club and how he has given it. It must be a celebration. The news of him parting ways with Roma came out of the blue, both for me and most of all for him".
However, it won't be just De Rossi's last game with Roma, but also Ranieri's: " It's always emotional for me to lead out Roma, or to watch them. My heart is with this club, I'll leave this team with the hope that they can keep getting better and better. My future? I see myself as an European coach, so I'll go where I'll find an intriguing project. Every day this Roma side has felt a bit more like mine. I have no regrets about how this spell has gone. I wish the very best to whoever comes in after me. "
