Roma's middling effort rescued by 8/10 super-sub Steven N'zonzi

The hosts looked like they were in for a great season debut in front of an enthusiastic Stadio Olimpico when Javier Pastore introduced himself to supporters with an outrageous back-heeled opener. But as is customary Roma assumed the match was done and dusted after just two minutes, sitting back for the rest of the first half as the Dea's power pressing saw them crash three...

Barcelona's Malcom not as good as Steven Nzonzi - Roma's Monchi

Roma sporting director Monchi said on Thursday that he believes midfielder Steven Nzonzi is a better player than Malcom, who spurned the club to join Barcelona last month.
