Manager Rudi Garcia has extended his contract until 2018 with AS Roma.

The club’s president, James Pallotta, released the following statement:
“I am happy to announce that Rudi Garcia and Roma have reached an agreement for the extension of an additional three years of the existing contract. As I have said many times in the past, having spent the first half-hour in New York in Rudi’s company, I knew he’d be the right choice to lead Roma for a long time. This extension is an integral part of our plan to bring continuity and success to our entire project. Roma’s ownership and leadership have worked together to build a world-class team. This is another step to fulfill our long-term vision. We are only at the beginning of our and Roma fan’s journey and we once again thank Rudi, his staff, and all of Roma for a wonderful start to what I hope will be a great future for our fans worldwide.”
