Cole Believes Club Should Consider Eto'o

Garcia Wants To Keep Pjanic

Roma manager Rudi Garcia has claimed that the club will be trying to keep midfielder Miralem Pjanic beyond this season. Pjanic has been one of the best players in the Italian Serie A this season. He has been a real star within the Roma team that has managed to fight for the title alongside Juventus for most of the season. It is only after a 4-1 defeat against Hellas Verona that they surrendered the league title to the difference from Turin.

Roma failed to stay in touch with the leaders after a 1-0 defeat to Napoli.
