Report: Garcia having doubts?

A report by Sport Mediaset suggests that Roma Coach Rudi Garcia is considering his long-term future at the club.

The Frenchman has been a revelation for the Giallorossi in his debut season but saw his side’s chances of winning the Scudetto ended last weekend when they lost 4-1 to Catania.

According to the article, sources close to the tactician have revealed that the 50-year-old is now reflecting on what the future holds at Stadio Olimpico.

He is said to want answers from club President James Pallotta as to whether he will be given the financial backing needed to mould a squad capable of challenging on all fronts next season.

He is also seeking assurances that his leading Giallorossi stars from this term will not be sold, as well as wondering whether the will to win that has characterised Roma’s season will still be present next year.

Following a sixth placed finish last season, Garcia took over and has seen his side accumulate 85 points so far this term.

It is a total that would have been enough to secure the Scudetto in five of the last six years, but it will now reportedly be up to Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini to persuade the former Lille boss that the Giallorossi can match his ambitions.
