Roma boss Garcia insists no reason for panic

AS Roma coach Rudi Garcia refuses to panic after defeat to Napoli.

Roma have scored only one goal in their last three games since Francesco Totti's injury.

Garcia said: "I am not worried, as you need a little bit of luck to score. Our shots went very close to the goal, whereas Napoli's chance hit the bar and went in. Let's also not forget Reina made some great saves.

"It's true we can be more effective in attack, but we hadn't played this well in a while and to do so on Napoli's home turf is really impressive.

"Maybe we have also lost some confidence and determination in attack, so we need to work on that. The goal is a good Napoli move, but it was simple to defend against. It is true that attack is the best form of defence, but we lost possession a few times to allow counter-attacks. The first line of defence is always the forward, so it's just a shame that we forgot that on the goal."
