Garcia: ‘Destro a threat’

Roma Coach Rudi Garcia admits Mattia Destro is a threat, but is focused on beating Milan tomorrow night.

The Giallorossi allowed the striker to join the Diavolo in January on loan with an option to buy, and the French Coach admits he’s aware of Destro’s qualities.

“We could talk about Destro, who we know is talented,” Garcia said when asked about Milan’s danger men in his pre-match Press conference.

“Now he’s at Milan, and I only speak about Roma.

“He and [replacement Seydou] Doumbia are both penalty box players, it [Destro leaving] hasn’t changed anything.

“The two players are not exactly the same, but there are very few differences, they’re both poachers who like the ball near the goal.

“We’ll think about our opponents, but the most important thing is Roma and what we can do to win the game.

“That’s all I’m interested in.”

City rivals Lazio are a point behind Garcia’s men, and are hosting Milan’s city rivals, Inter, on Sunday. Is this a chance for Roma to extend their lead?

“I’m only concerned about Milan-Roma, I’m not interested in other things. We have to be concentrated.

“We have to continue on our path in Milan, the goal will be to win.”
