Frenchman believes the Bianconeri will remain the dominant force in Italy for the foreseeable future

Rudi Garcia says Juventus are in a “league of their own” but praised his Roma side for “coming of their league” after securing second place in Serie A.

A disappointing second half of the saw Roma’s title bid fizzle out as Juventus coasted to a fourth straight league title.

Garcia’s men also had to hold off a charge from Lazio to secure a place in next season’s  group stage, but the Frenchman says his players couldn’t have done any more.

“The course of a season never runs smooth and we did have to negotiate a few rough moments,” Garcia said ahead of Sunday’s final match Palermo.

“We have a fantastic group of players here. We all stuck together and that’s what enabled us to finish second

“Roma is one of the most exciting projects in European and world football but we can’t get ahead of ourselves.

“Our overall assessment is that we came top of ‘our’ league. Juve are in a league of their own at the moment.”

Garcia has now set his sights on a better performance in the Champions League, after being knocked out in the group stages this term by Bayern Munich and Manchester City.

He added: “We were placed in a group of death in the Champions League but it was all good experience for us.

“Hopefully we’ll be in the third pot in next season’s draw. We might have an easier group then.”
