MOST COMMENTED

Rudi Garcia reflected on a difficult three points for AS Roma as the Serie A leader beat bottom-of-the-table Chievo Verona, 1-0, on Thursday to maintain its record-breaking streak of10 straight wins to open the season. Roma is now one win shy of equaling Tottenham Hotspur’s European record of 11 straight wins to start a first division campaign, set in 1960-61.  

“First of all I want to say Chievo don’t deserve to be bottom of the table,” the Roma coach told Sky Sport Italia. “They played well and remained united, as a team. I said on Friday this could be our most difficult game and I was not wrong. We brought the points home and it was important to make it 10 out of 10, as we saw yesterday Juventus and Napoli won while Inter and Fiorentina did not.”

Garcia singled out goalscorer Marco Boriello for praise: “Borriello has the goal in his blood. I won’t forget how difficult it was today to play as a center forward, because he depends on the balls that get to him. Alessandro Florenzi’s arrived at its destination.” The French tactician also noted that his team created few chances: “Without Francesco Totti and Gervinho, we are lacking something. We know Totti is unique and makes everyone play better, but I have an intelligent squad that knows how to adapt.”

Roma is in first place in Serie A with 30 points from 10 games, five points ahead of second-place Napoli and third-place Juventus. Read the original story...
