Rudi Garcia: Time to focus on the Serie A and Europa League


Roma coach Rudi Garcia was bitterly disappointed after his side crashed out of the Italian Cup.

Two Mario Gomez second half goals ended the Giallorossi's run in the competition and the Frenchman says the focus will now be shifted to the last two remaining competitions.

"We did well in the first half but it wasn't enough," Garcia said.

"In the second half they scored with their first clear opportunity, it's a shame. I have nothing [bad] to say to the lads, they are doing their best considering the players we have available.

"I was forced to utilise [Victor] Ibarbo who was out of action for a month and a half and who only trained once with us.

"We are conceding way too many goals and we're lacking spark in the offensive department.

"Our job is to get back to work straight away, focusing on the championship and Europa League."
