The Frenchman spoke to Sky Sport about the Italian Serie A. NZonzi is confident in a positive year.
Steven NZonzi joined Roma right at the end of the summer transfer window. The Frenchman landed in the Italian capital after having lifted the World Cup in Russia.
Although he is a very experienced player, the midfielder former Sevilla FC needed time to get used to the new environment.
“De Rossi helped me a lot when I arrived. He gives me suggestions during the training sessions. He also explains me something if I cannot understand the coach. Let’s say that he is an intermediary between me and the coach,” said NZonzi to Sky Sport Italia. “The most important thing to me is to train and feel well on the field. If I’m fine, I can give my contribution [to the team].”
The Frenchman has a great professional relationship with the Roma sporting director Monchi.
“I have an excellent relationship with him since my arrival in Sevilla. He told me many positive things about the club and the project.”
Eusebio Di Francesco‘s men are passing through ups and downs since the beginning of the season. NZonzi is confident that Roma have the possibility to improve and do well because the season has just started.
“At the beginning of the season, each player needs a little bit of time to find the right position on the field. Certainly, we have to improve in continuity. But the season is still long.”
