AS Roma skipper Francesco Totti joked about Rudi Garcia's team selection on the weekend for defeat to Genoa.

Totti, before kickoff, turned around inside the Roma dugout and declared with a smile on his face: "Who are all these kids? What are they doing here?"

Federico Ricci and Tin Jedvaj received their first Serie A starts, while Luca Mazzitelli came on as a substitute for his debut.

Roma chief Mauro Baldissoni explained: "It was a choice of the coach who wanted to give these young players a chance. We give space to those who we feel can make the most of it."
