Rudi Garcia remained positive despite AS Roma losing their 100% record away to Torino last night.

Roma had set a new Serie A record for consecutive wins at the start of a season with ten in a row, but it eventually came to an end with a 1-1 draw after Alessio Cerci equalised to strike out Kevin Strootman's initial goal.

However, the former Lille manager seemed unconcerned about the loss of the run.

"For the people outside the team, our series of victories could have seemed to be extraordinary, but it wasn't the same for us because we're only focused on winning the next match," he told reporters.

"This draw won't change our attitude. We'll now get ready for the home match against Sassuolo."

The 49-year-old Frenchman praised his opponents for their role in ending the run.

"We played against a skilled team, Torino, which has a very strong player such as Cerci," he added. "That team defended and waited for us to make a mistake. That's why it was important for us to lead the match."

Even with the loss of the incredible run, AS Roma are still unbeaten after 11 Serie A matches and are three points clear of title rivals Napoli and Juventus.
