Rudi Garcia slammed the performance of his players following Roma’s 2-0 loss to Napoli on Saturday. “To win here you need to put in a great performance, but you certainly can’t do it playing like this,” the Giallorossi coach told Sky Sport Italia. “Napoli were the better team today and deserved to win.”
In particular, the Frenchman bemoaned Roma’s poor first half: “We lost almost every challenge in the first half. We need to reflect on that and improve. Even if it’s the first time it has happened, we must not allow this mentality to seep in again.”
With the loss, Roma fell three points behind Serie A pace-setter Juventus, which picked up a 2-0 win at Empoli later on Saturday.
