Roma coach talked to Roma’s official website about his team’s performance against Inter Milan in the league.

The Giallorossi lost 1-0 in a match that saw  play the entire 90 minutes.

“We’re also to blame for the result because we weren’t clinical enough in front of the goal.” Garcia said.

“You can see that not only from the statistics but also the attempts on goal.”

The Frenchman said that he was pleased with his side’s overall display – from the defense to the front three.

“Pjanic shouldn’t have appealed against the two handballs the referee didn’t give against Inter players. Then he did it, we went a man down and he won’t be available for the next game,” he added.

When asked if the forward players become predictable when Dzeko plays, Garcia disagreed and said that it was because Inter sat deep and closed down spaces.

“Only Salah was occasionally able to find some space. Our issue today was that we shot too close to the opposition goalkeeper, who was man of the match and prevented us from scoring,” he explained.
