Roma coach admitted he was surprised to see receive a red card in the team’s triumph against Fiorentina.

Salah  scored the first goal in Roma’s win against his former club, before getting booked for a foul then receiving a second yellow seconds later for his objection, which was a harsh call from referee Daniele Orsato according to Garcia.

“Before the game I spoke with him [Salah], I always speak with my players. I wanted to make sure that he is calm and he actually was,” Garcia told Premium Sport

“The only negative point [for Salah] was the red card, which I think was very harsh. True, he didn’t have to make that gesture, but he does not even speak Italian. He didn’t say anything,”

“Salah has been suffering from insults for several days, if that incident deserved a red then many others deserve too. However, on the psychological level Salah was smart to not respond to [Fiorentina’s fans] whistles,” he concluded.
