Garcia pleads as Roma fans stay away


MILAN: Roma can achieve “big things” this season but only if an ongoing fan boycott that has seen the Serie A title hopefuls play to a near empty Stadio Olimpico ends, said embattled coach Rudi Garcia. Garcia was whistled and jeered by fans as his face appeared on the big screen prior to kick-off on Sunday, when Roma dug deep to end a four-game winless streak with a 2-0 win at home to Genoa. Garcia is said to be clinging to his job after Roma’s failure to beat Bologna, Atalanta, Torino and, to a lesser extent, Napoli, and a scoreless draw at home to BATE Borisov in the Champions League.
