Garcia relieved as Roma see off Udinese

AS Roma coach Rudi Garcia admits they were fortunate to see off Udinese yesterday.

Roma defeated Udinese 3-2, with Francesco Totti and Mattia Destro getting on the scoresheet.

"We had done many great things, but also given away too many chances. We hadn't suffered like this at home for 15 games," Garcia told Sky Sport Italia.

"They say football is the art of making life difficult for yourself, but we got the three points and that was the important thing.

"We could've scored more goals, but without a great Morgan De Sanctis performance we could've conceded more too.

"We made mistakes and misplaced some very easy passes. That is the problem, as we must be always concentrated and never leave anything to the opposition."
