New Roma coach surprises De Sanctis
The Frenchman was appointed in summer and goalkeeper De Sanctis, who was also signed in the summer from Napoli, spoke to TRT Sport about his new boss.
“He’s a good and serious coach, one who pays attention to details,” the Italian said. “He’s also aware of how important communication is in this business.
“He has endeavoured to learn the Italian language in a very short space of time and that fact is helping him as well,” he added.
The former Lille coach has guided his new club to two victories over Livorno and Hellas Verona so far and De Sanctis’ praise came just a day after sporting director Walter Sabatini also complimented Garcia.
“I followed him with curiosity after he won the French title with a team of kids,” Sabatini told Canal Plus.
“I invited him to a meeting in Milan this summer and he cut short his holiday to come and see me. He immediately underlined great enthusiasm.
“I was convinced by him instantly and I follow my instinct. By the time he left our meeting, I had already chosen him,” he concluded.
