Rudi Garcia: News on Seydou Keita, Adem Ljajic and Gervinho


Roma coach Rudi Garcia says his players are fit and ready for Saturday's game away at Empoli.

International matches have affected the preparation for the match but the Frenchman explained that two full of days of training were enough to reach an acceptable level of fitness.

"We had two full days to work on the match," Garcia said in Friday's press conference.

"The new players settled down pretty quickly, we will show that two days are enough to be competitive."

Roma will feature in the Champions League this season, three years after crashing out to Shakhtar Donetsk in the Last 16.

And Garcia knows it is not easy to keep the focus ahead of such an important game.

"Yes, there's always danger [to lose focus]," added the Frenchman.

"But my job is to keep a high level of concentration for the Empoli game.

"In fact I don't remember who we will play against on Wednesday."

With no players coming back injured from international duty, the Frenchman confirmed all of them are set to feature against Empoli.

"Ljajic is fit, but we were careful with the African players, they are healthy and they will be 100% fit for tomorrow," added Garcia.
