Rudi Garcia: The guys were excellent, both tactically and mentally


Roma coach Rudi Garcia was delighted after yesterday's win away at Fiorentina.

The Giallorossi went top of the table after a very convincing 2-1 win against the Viola.

And Garcia was full of praise for his players after the game.

"We came here to Florence to secure top spot, but also to play with the right attitude," Garcia told reporters.

"I saw two sides to our play tonight. Up until the first goal we pressed high up the field, and then after taking the lead we hung back and played on the counter.

"The match will give us confidence in defence because we conceded very few chances and limited them to long-range efforts, which Szczesny dealt well with. I'm pleased. The guys were excellent tonight, both tactically and mentally.

"[Title favourites?] Not Roma, not so long ago we were all rubbish, from the players to the coach and even the sporting director.

"We can't be favorites now just because we're in first place. We just keep doing our job and right now we're first after a quarter of the season.

"I don't need to tell my players they need to keep their feet on the ground. I want to thank the fans that were here tonight, we need them at the Olimpico too because we can't achieve big things without them.

"We believe in ourselves if we stick together and show humility, but there's a long way to go."
