Roma manager Rudi Garcia says that he was hugely satisfied by his side's 3-1 victory over Atalanta BC in Serie A.

Roma manager Rudi Garcia has said that he was hugely satisfied by his side's 3-1 victory over Atalanta BC on Saturday evening.

Rodrigo Taddei, Adem Ljajic and Gervinho all found the back of the net for the Giallorossi as they closed the gap on Serie A leaders Juventus to five points.

"We could've avoided conceding the late goal and been more consistent throughout the game, but apart from that I saw a great Roma," Garcia told Sky Sport Italia.

"The team play and scoring opportunities were wonderful. I loved the second and third goals, which were created by the collective. That is hugely satisfying for a Coach to see.

"It was very important to extend our lead over third place and to keep the title race alive."

Roma have now won their past seven games in the league.
