Roma coach Garcia excited about Champions League qualification

AS Roma coach Rudi Garcia admits qualifying for the Champions League is a dream come true.

The Giallorossi thumped Atalanta 3-1 yesterday.

Garcia said: "The dream of a Coach when a team has a season like this is to maintain his squad and strengthen it with more signings. Of course, only the President knows Roma's economic strength next year.

"What I do wish is that we don't just go into the Champions League and play only the group phase with no chance of going into the knockouts. We want to enter that tournament and really have our say.

"At the moment there are many great teams in Europe and it's a long path for us to join them, but Rome wasn't built in a day and neither will Roma be.

"In Europe as well as Serie A it is important to keep the tempo up, prevent opponents from coming out of their own half in a relaxed manner and ensure we are difficult to play against."
