Giovanni Trapattoni critical of Rudi Garcia’s remarks

Former Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni spoke to La Gazzetta dello Sport and critized Rudi Garcia’s Scudetto comments from earlier this season.

“Garcia’s comments? An error to say publically that they will win the championship. I do not know if he did it to urge-on the fans or the team, but in Italy these statements can be risky.”
