Steven Nzonzi finds positives in Roma's 6-goal thriller

Steven Nzonzi insists there's positives to take from AS Roma's 3-3 draw with Torino.

The Giallorossi were 3-1 down to a reshuffled Atalanta side, but clawed their way back to 3-3 with Alessandro Florenzi and Kostas Manolas.

“It's never easy to come back from two goals down against a side that gave its all. We felt a little tired and got a good point in the end, even if we wanted to win," the France international told Roma TV.

This was his Serie A debut after the transfer from Sevilla and he was booked 13 minutes after stepping on as a second half substitute.

“I feel good, and it's true that I didn't have much time in training, but I am in good shape psychologically too. I can only get better.

“It's hard to say when I'll be at 100 per cent, but the important thing is that the team reaches its peak. I'll keep training and wait for my chance.

“I think this match will be a useful lesson going forward and we learned a lot from it. There are areas where we need to improve and Atalanta pushed hard, but the second half was positive and that bodes well for the future."
