Garcia’s Thoughts After 3-2 Win Over Udinese

Rudi Garcia spoke after Roma’s 3-2 victory over Udinese at the Olimpico.

A match that was both beautiful and complicated?

“Yes, we did good things but also got it wrong too. We suffered like never before at home, but such is football. Tonight was a display of us creating our own problems. What matters is that we found the 3 points. We could have scored more but without Morgan De Sanctis, we also could have suffered much more.”

Totti and Destro. A sequel is possible?

“We had the ability to score more than 3 goals, we’ve tried this before and I’m glad the effect that these three (Destro, Totti, Gervinho) had. The return of the captain brightened our game.”

Dodo is difficult to decipher. What ‘s missing?
“He’s a fullback that is better in attack. He has focused more on defending and has already improved a lot. As for getting a feel for the match, he has to train and play more.”

A message for Strootman?

“I have nothing to say in public, I look forward to playing in the Champions League, we hope to reach that goal.”
