Rudi Garcia: Landed award

Garcia finished ahead of France manager Didier Deschamps and St Etienne coach Christophe Galtier to win the award.

The 49-year-old, who is in his first season at Roma, has led the Giallorossi to break a club record of 15 straight games without losing in Serie A.

A statement from France Football read: "Following an excellent coaching debut in Serie A, Roma coach Rudi Garcia has been chosen as the best French coach of the year."

Garcia, who won the same award back in 2011 after leading Lille to a French double - Ligue 1 title and the Coupe de France - could not believe the news.

"I honestly didn't expect this," Garcia told France Football. "Fortunately, I was sitting down when I heard the news.

"I was pleasantly surprised by the announcement."

Roma are second in Serie A, three points behind leaders Juventus.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
