Rudi Garcia: I'm pleased for the players most of all


Roma coach Rudi Garcia was visibly delighted after yesterday's 2-1 home win against reigning champions Juventus.

The Giallorossi dominated the game and created plenty of goal-scoring opportunities only to be denied by in-form goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon.

But they did break the deadlock in the second half of the game to register their first win in this season's Serie A.

"Yes, we're a team that plays football, just as we did during my first 18 months in charge," Garcia told reporters.

"One of the strengths of this side is our team spirit and that goes for everyone, be it the guys starting the game or those coming off the bench.

"We know we've got quality footballers, though I did have some decisions to make at the back and thankfully things went well with the four that started the match. I'm talking about Digne, who I didn't want to start because he last played at the end of July. But he understands the team's style of play because it's the same one we used when we were together at Lille.

"I always think about the group as a whole and I'm pleased for the players most of all. They're the ones who did the work out on the pitch, though we could've played better when leading 2-0 against ten men.

"We dropped a little too deep after the opening goal and forgot to press as we did for the first 60 minutes of the match. I'm mainly referring to the pressing shown by our front three of Falque, Dzeko and Salah.

"It's still just the start of the season though and the fixture list threw up this massive game. I enjoy playing games like these and in terms of the confidence it can bring to the team, our win over Juventus can show us the way forward."
