Mavuba addresses Roma links

In recent weeks there have been reports that Roma are interested in signing Rio Mavuba, who was the captain of  Lille during Rudi Garcia’s spell at the helm of the French club.

Mavuba, today, responded to the rumors: “When a club like Roma is interested in you, it is very pleasing but for now I haven’t received any concrete offers. If Garcia wants me at Roma, I could never say no to him.”

“I have a special relationship with him (Garcia), because chose me to captain at Lille. He is an exceptional person and a great lover of sport. I know that the media were a bit surprised at the results he got with Roma but for me it’s just further justification of his abilities.”

“If Roma keep the same group together then I’m sure Garcia will do a good job  again because he is not someone who is easily satisfied. He wants to prove that Roma can do well, especially in a major competition like the Champions League. Of course it will also depend on the group stage draw but with his kind of character, he will be able to motivate the team.”
