Destro thrilled to hit Roma winner

Mattia Destro came off the bench to score AS Roma's winner against Fiorentina.

His last goal for Roma was in May, but he came off the bench to secure a 2-1 victory.

"The only thing that mattered to me was getting back on to the field, as I really couldn't take it anymore," he told Sky Sport Italia.

"To score a goal as well was just wonderful. I was out for such a long time, but it's all behind me now and I am back.

"I think we put in a great performance against an excellent Fiorentina side and were able to get the important win."
