Roma boss Garcia frustrated with Man Utd defeat

AS Roma boss Rudi Garcia was frustrated in defeat to Manchester United.

The Giallorossi lost 3-2.

"It was a shame to go into the break 3-0 down. We need to be sharper, because if 2-0 down at half-time we could well have won.

"The result was excessive, but at the end of the day they won and deserved it. The difference was in their efficiency, as Manchester United had 50 per cent more shots on target.

"There were many youngsters today who had never even played in Serie A, so it was natural to feel a little nervousness against United."

Miralem Pjanic stole the headlines in this match with an extraordinary goal from his own half, at least 50 yards out, just a day after he scored from the same distance while visiting the Denver Broncos.

"Pjanic's goal was fantastic and will go all round the world. I can say the training session with the Broncos did him good!"
