Garcia admits Roma must replace Bradley

AS Roma coach Rudi Garcia admits they need to buy after losing Michael Bradley to Toronto FC.

Roma are in talks for Al Ain winger Michel Bastos.

Garcia said: "We are in second place and want to do everything possible to have an even better second half of the season. This is why we needed a player if Michael Bradley left and one more option on the wing.

"As Federico Balzaretti is out for the moment, Bastos can also play left-back, though Dodo impressed today and is getting better. Obviously Dodo can't play every game until the end of the season."

"I am not trying to change Roma tactically. We know Nainggolan and I hope Bastos - if he arrives - above all play good football and are very talented. It's true they have physicality, pace and are good at taking players on, which is what makes a complete player in modern football."
