Garcia: 'Good Sczsesny debut'

Rudi Garcia was pleased with Wojciech Szczesny’s Roma debut, but “there was nothing friendly” about Sporting CP.

“Obviously it’s a step forward in terms of achieving the right fitness levels,” the Coach told Roma TV after a 2-0 defeat in Lisbon.

“Next week Sporting will play a very important Super Cup against Benfica, so they are already in good shape and for the moment Roma are not.

Roma target Wijnaldum?

Roma are reportedly interested in PSV captain Georginio Wijnaldum as they continue their rebuilding for next season. 

La Gazzetta dello Sport has reported that the Giallorossi are looking to the 24-year-old as a potential addition to their midfield, where he would team up with international teammate Kevin Strootman.

The paper believes the capital club have already made their first inquiry to the Dutch champions and that the Lupi will have to spend at least €15m if they are to sign the midfielder.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Bayer Leverkusen emissaries were at San Siro on Saturday night to view Ucan in the Milan-Roma game.

Roma's youth movement

Rudi Garcia's past reluctance to use youth changed on Sunday night with the introductions of Salih Ucan and Lorenzo Pellegrini. A bold move from the Frenchman, writes Aman Sehdev.

Roma entered Sunday night's encounter with relegation-threatened Cesena in dire straits. With just two Serie A victories in 2015 it was vital the Giallorossi return to winning ways, with eternal rivals Lazio breathing down their neck in the race for second place. So a quick glance at the team sheet before kick-off brought a collective gasp from Romanisti around the world. Starting in the centre of midfield, the supremely gifted, but until now, overlooked Turkish youngster Salih Ucan.

Rudi Garcia said Daniele De Rossi deciding Roma’s 1-0 victory at Cesena was “a good sign.”

The Giallorossi kept Juventus at 14 points and above all held off Lazio to stay in second.

“The lads proved they are united. They showed character in a difficult arena, especially at this moment where other teams of a high level either didn’t win or lost,” Garcia told Sky Sport Italia.

Garcia repeating past failures?

Roma's recent struggles have an alarming similarity to Rudi Garcia’s doomed final year in charge of Lille, Aman Sehdev writes.

Roma sank to a new low on Monday night. Defeat to Sampdoria ended a streak of six home draws in a row, leaving the Giallorossi firmly mired in a battle to hold on to second place and the automatic Champions League qualification spot.

The slump in form since the turn of the year has caught most by surprise, but it appears Rudi Garcia's stubbornness to adjust his game-plan is mirroring his final season plateau at Lille.

Liverpool circling Nainggolan?

Liverpool are showing interest in Roma's Radja Nainggolan and may pounce on the Giallorossi’s co-ownership status with Cagliari.

Roma hold 50 per cent of the Belgian’s registration at a cost of €9m, but have yet to agree with the Isolani a deal for the remaining share.

Needing to resolve the co-ownership by June, the situation reportedly has Liverpool ready to complicate matters.
