Rudi Garcia: The season doesn't end after four matches


Roma coach Rudi Garcia has rubbished claims that his team is struggling for confidence.

The Giallorossi were heavily criticised after last Sunday's 2-2 draw at home against Sassuolo but the Frenchman says he will only assess the first part of the season before the October international break.

"The season doesn't end after four matches," Garcia told reporters.

"We've had some positive matches and some less positive ones, but we're motivated to perform well. Sitting in fourth position with eight points from two wins and two draws, having beaten Juventus and held Barcelona, is no big catastrophe in my eyes.

"The situation will be clearer after we've played Carpi, BATE Borisov and Palermo. We'll take a leaf out of the cyclists' book and pedal as far as we can and then take stock.

"The teams at the top of the table are there on merit. But four matches really isn't a long time. It's too early to say that the league is done and dusted.

"What would the teams below us say? Right now the table is more a psychological thing. That's why I'm angry we didn't beat Sassuolo as it would have meant us putting a string of wins together.

"We need to concentrate on tomorrow's match and we are focused on Sampdoria. After that we'll take each game as it comes."
