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."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
