Rudi Garcia: It will be tough at Palermo but we're going there for the three points


Roma coach Rudi Garcia insists his objective is to win silverware at the club.

The Frenchman came under heavy pressure after the mid-week Champions League defeat against BATE Borisov but he says the player are working extremely hard to bounce back from a very disappointing defeat.

"There were some positive aspects [in the Champions League] and others less, which gave us real problems in terms of the scoreline in the first half," Garcia told reporters.

"In the second period, we showed what we're made of and that we can do great things, but we need to find greater consistency over 90 minutes.

"We watched the game back on video to analyze what we didn't do so well at times during the match. Either way, the most important match is always the next one and, after a loss, everyone, the coach and players have great desire to go on a winning run in the league, which began against Carpi.

"That's how we'll climb the table. It will be tough at Palermo but we're going there for the three points, just as we always do.

"My aim is to win trophies here at Roma because the club deserve to.

"They do everything they can, from the president right through to the people working at Trigoria, who always work as hard as they can to create the ideal conditions for the team.

"The players also give 100%, albeit in fits and starts at the moment, but we can definitely achieve great things once we harness this squad's potential.

"We'll see over the course of the season and it's still too soon to assess things. We move forward with our minds solely on Palermo, nothing else."
