Garcia delighted with Nainggolan Roma debut in Coppa win

AS Roma coach Rudi Garcia was delighted with Radja Nainggolan's debut in their Coppa Italia win over Sampdoria.

Roma fullback Vasilis Torosidis struck the only goal of the game.

"I liked the performance, as we had plenty of chances to double our lead and did not suffer at the back," said Garcia.

"It's a shame the second goal didn't arrive so we could be more relaxed at the end, but I am happy with our qualification, as that was the important thing.

"Nainggolan can play in any midfield role. With him there we can play with Miralem Pjanic in a more advanced position and Francesco Totti as trequartista. There are many possibilities with Radja."
