Rudi Garcia: Our objective this season is to qualify for the Champions League


Roma coach Rudi Garcia has called for fans to unite to lift the team ahead of tomorrow's season opener away at Verona.

The Giallorossi will open this season's Serie A campaign against Andrea Mandorlini's men and will be determined to take all three points ahead of next week's big match against Juventus at the Stadio Olimpico.

"Tomorrow we have to be good in blocking Verona and to show our quality on the pitch," Garcia told reporters.

"As for the championship, we are ambitious, I came here to win trophies and we will do whatever it takes to achieve our objectives.

"Our primary objective is the same as the last two seasons: to qualify for the Champions League.

"It is important for the players, the coaches and the fans to be united because we damage Roma when we're not.

"We have a fantastic group of players [so] we will be strong if we are united."
