Rudi Garcia on the Fiorentina game, the title race and injuries


Roma coach Rudi Garcia says it's too early to focus on the title race.

The Giallorossi face a tricky away game against Fiorentina on Sunday and with Juventus having a relatively easy game against Chievo at home, a win is a must for Garcia's men.

"There are still 57 points up for grabs so we can still be in front," Garcia said during today's press conference.

"It's a marathon and we should be 100% ready for every game and do our best to win.

"But I always look forward and so does the team so our focus is on Fiorentina. We need consistency, we tend to suffer from up and downs, even during matches.

"Then granted, when we don't perform I accept criticism but it should be objective.

"We have to go there with confidence and take all three points. That's our objective, like always."

Asked to give an update on injured players, Garcia said: "[Kostas] Manolas is fit, he trained for two full days.

"[Vasilis] Torosidis is not in the squad so Maicon and Florenzi are options for the role on the wing.

"I also have two players for the left wing. In central defence I have plenty of options and you know I'm happy when I have plenty of players to choose from."
