Garcia speaks after friendly loss to Inter

Rudi Garcia’s post-match words after the Giallorossi’s friendly loss to Inter:

The attackers?
“Sometimes for me when an attacker has opportunities it’s a more positive sign than negative. We worked on the physical aspect and we must be more accurrate in front of goal. This is an anomaly, I’m not worried.”

You didn’t have a good game, however Nainggolan was strong…
“When we win, I don’t like to talk about a single player and put them in the spotlight. We lost together, it’s everyone’s fault. I won’t say anything about Radja, but he played a good game. Everyone can do better. We need to move the ball faster.”

Florenzi again played at right-back: is this a permanent move?
“I’m missing two fullbacks: one is at Trigoria and the other is resting after the World Cup. When they’re back with us, Florenzi will return to his role, which (he) is much more useful for me: on the wing. But he’s capable of playing this role, our defensive gameplan must make more guidelines, on the offensive side: he had an assist to Totti against Real Madrid and one for Destro today. It is no surprise to see him play well in this role.”
