Jedvaj hails Garcia approach

New Roma signing Tin Jedvaj has been won over by Coach Rudi Garcia. “He handles interpersonal relationships well and we all feel important.”

The Croatian defender was brought in from Dinamo Zagreb for €4m and is still only 17 years old.

“I am the youngest player here, but there’s no age difference on the field. Of course it’s logical that I respect everyone off the pitch,” said Jedvaj in his Press conference.

“I am at ease in central defence, though I can also adapt to play at right-back and even in midfield. It’s not a problem for me.

“I’m settling in well and everyone is very kind. I’ve become firm friends with Alessio Romagnoli and Miralem Pjanic.

“Garcia handles interpersonal relationships well, he talks to us all and makes sure we all feel important. I hope that I have the right opportunities here at Roma.”
