Rudi Garcia: It's nice to be involved in games like this


Roma coach Rudi Garcia says he is looking forward to today's away game against Fiorentina.

The first and second of the Serie A will go head-to-head this evening with the Giallorossi eager to cause an upset at the Stadio Artemio Franchi and go top of the table.

"It will be a great game," Garcia said.

"I said before Leverkusen that this was an exciting week. We're still in the running to qualify from our Champions League group and now we have this match against Fiorentina, who are an excellent side and have made a really good start to the season.

"It's nice to be involved in games like this and hopefully it will be as enjoyable as Tuesday's was – two very good sides facing off and offering up some great football, perhaps with one goal less than on Tuesday.

"The away stand will be packed tomorrow and that makes me feel very proud. It will give us added incentive to do everything we can.

"Edin [Dzeko] is an extra option for us.

"He's a fantastic player who we wanted here because he knows how to do a bit of everything. It's not a problem whether he starts or comes on as a sub.

"We need to put people alongside him who are capable of providing him with quality service and also people who can get in behind the defense – something he can do himself in a different way."
