Garcia wants to keep…

Roma Coach Rudi Garcia says he wants to retain virtually the whole of his Giallorossi squad for next season.

The Frenchman was speaking to Roma Channel in Orlando, having taken his side there as part of a post-season tour.

As well as praising the facilities on offer at his team’s base, the 50-year-old tactician complimented his squad’s work ethic throughout the season shortly after the completion of their final training session of the campaign.

“It is a very good centre and has a good quality pitch,” Garcia said. “The most important thing is to have a good quality pitch.

“It’s strange that it’s our last training session, the season has passed quickly and with many highs.

“Today’s training, even though it was the last, was done at 100 per cent. This group is fantastic and we hope to keep virtually the whole squad.

“We have already started to build the future. Pjanic’s renewal is a good sign for the club, because the first job is to keep our players.

“Then we need to bring in players with experience. In some positions where we are a little short in terms of quantity, we need to weigh up our options.”
