The Giallorossi recorded their third straight win in Monday night's 3-1 triumph at Parma to join Napoli at the top of the Serie A.

"I'm not looking at the standings right now," Garcia said in Corriere dello Sport. "The only think I am counting are the points."

Roma trailed 1-0 at half-time but turned the result around with goals from Alessandro Florenzi, Francesco Totti and Kevin Strootman.

"I like to win with a comeback," Garcia said. "It is proof that we play as a team.

"Parma are a good side but I like the fact we had suffer in order to get a win.

"It is always difficult to play away from home but we did well."

Roma hired former Lille boss Garcia this summer after parting company with Aurelio Andreazzoli.

Garcia, who signed a two-year contract with Roma, will experience his first major test in Italy's top flight when his team take on city rivals Lazio on Sunday.

The Giallorossi, who finished sixth last season, will look to avenge their Coppa Italia defeat to Lazio that saw them miss out on European football this season.

"Now we have six days to prepare for the derby," Garcia said. "It is going to be an important week."

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.

Sterling Case For Leaving 'Bigger' Club

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
