AS Roma coach Rudi Garcia described Juventus boss Antonio Conte as seeming “nervous” following the Giallorossi’s 2-0 win at home to AC Milan on Friday. Roma cut the gap at the top to five points with Friday’s victory, although Juve has a game in hand which it plays later Monday. Garcia has sought to keep the title race in Italy alive by telling Serie A’s other teams to up their game against Juve, a remark that Conte labeled as ‘bar talk’ from a ‘provincial’ manager.
“To me, Conte seems a bit nervous,” Garcia said on Monday. “But I have nothing to say on it. I just want to enjoy this day, and that’s it. It’s been an honor to be here at Roma for the last 10 months.” He added: “We’ll see what happens tonight [between Juve and Sassuolo]. We just have to concentrate on beating Catania – but our fate is not in our hands. At the moment though, everything seems to be going well for us.”
