Roma are happy with the work of coach Rudi Garcia but are not ready to rush talks on a new contract.

The Frenchman joined Roma last summer from Lille and is under contract for a further season with the Serie A outfit.

"Garcia has one year left in his contract and hence, we have all the time to discuss his renewal," Roma general director Mauro Baldissoni said to asromanews.it. "We want to reciprocally extend our rapport. There is time to renew his contract."

Roma won 2-0 at Sassuolo on Sunday and are second in Serie A, 11 points behind league leaders Juventus with seven games remaining.

I Giallorossi can close the gap on Juventus to eight points if they beat Parma on Wednesday, a game that was postponed back in February due to heavy rainfall in Rome.

"I'm optimistic that Roma can win its remaining games," Baldissoni said. "With regards to Juve's advantage in the standings, we can only hope."
