New AS Roma boss Rudi Garcia says his first task is to get to grips with the language.
Garcia signed a two-year contract and is busy preparing for his debut Serie A season.
â€śI donâ€™t speak Italian yet, but I understand almost everything, as I speak Spanish,â€ť he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
â€śI know it is very important to express yourself in the home language for various reasons. Youâ€™ll see that I will be fluent soon.
â€śThere is a lot of work to do and we are already at it with Walter Sabatini and Frederic Massara. I know the team, but have to move over as soon as possible to plan out the season, starting from summer training.
â€śAs I said at my presentation in New York, I am a faithful person. I hope to stay at Roma for a long time, just as I did at Lille.â€ť
