Garcia: There were enough missiles to open a shop

Roma coach Rudi Garcia said he "could have opened a shop" with all the missiles hurled onto the pitch by the Feyenoord fans during his side’s 2-1 Europa League victory.

Play was brought to halt just before the hour mark after a red card for Feyenoord’s Mitchell te Vrede sparked an angry reaction from the home supporters.

The match was suspended for around 15 minutes as fans hurled objects onto the field.

“It was right they suspended the game,” Garcia told Mediaset.

“We could have opened a shop with all the objects that were thrown from the stands."

Adem Ljajic had given Roma a first-half lead and when play eventually resumed, Elvis Manu equalised for the hosts before Gervinho quickly resorted Roma’s lead and secured a 3-2 aggregate victory for the Serie A side.

"We deserved the win," Garcia added.

"It was difficult to come here and win in Holland, but we managed it thanks to our style of football.

"The players gave everything, showed great intensity and hunger. We did well to score straight after conceding the equaliser, even if we then went dropped too deep."
