Garcia defends Roma after Juventus defeat

AS Roma coach Rudi Garcia says they're not dwelling on their one-sided defeat at Juventus.

Garcia insists they were better than the scoreline suggested.

"As for what happened on Sunday, I can only refer to (Juve keeper Gig) Buffon's words - he praised the way we played in the first half an hour and that's a positive to take for us.

"How do we bounce back? The best thing is to focus on the field and get stuck into the next game. We want to prove to ourselves and to others that just how determined we are to get back to winning ways.

"I repeat, I have nothing else to say about Turin. I don't want to waste time on a defeat. All that matters is winning the next one, which is right around the corner and we're playing at home.

"The Scudetto race? You add things up at the end. It's very dangerous to draw conclusions based on a single match. We lost our first game after 17 without defeat."
