French government praise for Roma coach Garcia: Our Mourinho

AS Roma coach Rudi Garcia has won praise from the French government.

Garcia's Roma sit top of the Serie A table after six wins from the opening six games of the season.

Alain Le Roy, the French ambassador to Italy, declared: "Now I am following Garcia much more at Roma. Before he was not so well known, because he coached Lille, now he's showing all his worth.

"He is the French Mourinho.

"I am passionate about Roma. When I was not here, I was living between France and New York and admired Totti. Yes, if I am a Roma fan it is because there is Totti, a fantastic player."
