Pallotta: ‘Constant contact with Garcia’

Roma President James Pallotta and sporting director Walter Sabatini have given their backing to Coach Rudi Garcia.

The tactician is thought to be under pressure after a poor run of results, and wasn’t helped by conceding a late draw to Torino at the weekend.

“We don’t need to meet him,” Pallotta said outside a club meeting, explaining the absence of Garcia.

“We talk almost every day on the phone, we’re in constant contact.

“Torino? We had a couple of chances to win, but that penalty at the end...

“BATE Borisov? That’s the big game.”

Sabatini also addressed assembled journalists after the meeting, and played down any talk of a change on the bench.

“If Garcia goes down, we go down together.”
