Roma chief Monchi mocks Malcom: Nzonzi is better

AS Roma chief Monchi has enjoyed a swipe at Barcelona signing Malcom.

Malcom infamously rejected Roma at the last minute to sign for Barca earlier this summer - with his agent taking a swipe at the Giallorossi in the process.

But at the signing presentation of former Sevilla midfielder Steven Nzonzi, Monchi hit back.

"What's better than signing a world champion?" remarked Monchi.

"They have different roles but for me Nzonzi is better than Malcom. We have turned the page. We continue to look for players in the same position and other positions."
