Yanga-Mbiwa: Rudi Garcia is a winner


In today’s edition of L’Equipe, Roma defender Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa was asked about his time in the capital thus far:

“I feel full from confidence Rudi Garcia. The mister is a winner, I’m in Rome thanks to him. I feel good here. We are a great team because we are a great group. I didn’t know of the levels of Serie A and playing right away helped me acclimate. It also allowed me to integrate more quickly into a club that is among the best in the world. In every footballer’s career, there are ups and downs, but it can be good to encounter challenges along the way. I am sure that this will help me. One should always have hope, self-confidence and we need to be aware of our quality. Then we will see what I’ve done and what I can do with Roma. I came here to win titles, going as far as possible in the Champions League and play as much as possible. Winning the championship is clearly a goal for everyone: we have the players, the fans, and the staff. We want the Scudetto! We have the strength and experience to compete on multiple fronts.”
