AS Roma coach Rudi Garcia says new signings Gervinho and Adem Ljajic aren't ready for 90 minutes.

Roma face Hellas Verona today.

"Ljajic’s fitness levels are about the same as Gervinho, as neither of them have 90 minutes in their legs. It won’t be important whether they start or come in later against Verona, as we just need to win,” said Garcia.

“It won’t be easy with Verona, as they beat Milan last week, have a lot of quality even aside from Luca Toni and defend well as a collective who can also hit you on the break."
