Marquinho reaction not aimed at Garcia
The agent of Roma midfielder Marquinho insists his reaction to been substituted in Wednesday’s 2-0 win at Sampdoria was not aimed at coach Rudi Garcia.
The 27 year-old looked frustrated as he was replaced by Francesco Totti on 62 minutes.
“Marquinho is fine with Garcia,” Alessio Ceccarelli told Gianluca Di Marzio, as reported by Football Italia. “His outburst in Genoa was aimed at the referee.
“Not that the referee had a bad game, it’s just that Marquniho felt he was fouled a few times – and that’s where his reaction came from.
“He has an exceptional relationship with Garcia and is respected by the Coach – they speak with each other on a daily basis.
“The Coach has a great relationship with all his players.”
Marquinho joined Roma in 2012 from Fluminense.
