Roma coach Di Francesco assures Monchi: I don't care about Malcom

AS Roma coach Eusebio Di Francesco insists they're already over missing out on Malcom's signing.

The former Bordeaux attacker rejected Roma to join Barcelona late on Tuesday.

Di Francesco said: "There are lots of other players available.

"It didn't go as Monchi had hoped, but I don't care about it anymore. We have a competitive squad.

“It's normal that we're always vigilant in the market. We have excellent players and we know what we have to do. We'll do whatever we deem appropriate.

“These games, in which I will give everyone minutes, will be indicative. I'm happy with Pastore, he's putting a lot of effort into finding the right shape. Having played so little, he has to get sharper, but he's improving."
