Curious, very curious is the life of the mediocentro of the Seville FC that now it hallucinates to half world Steven N'Zonzi. A humble man to the that do not like him the focuses and that has struggled all his life for turning into professional footballer. Since it saw to Okocha and to Ronaldinho with the T-shirt of Paris Saint-Germain, Steven knew that the his was this of the balompié. It grew and it was forging his football until his arrival to Andalucia. 

The own French footballer recognised in an interview to the months to arrive to the Sánchez Pizjuán the bad that was going through it the change of climate. "At the beginning I had difficulties by the time, a lot of heat. I happened it really bad. The time does the difficult things for everything", recognised for "The Desmarque". A N'Zonzi that to the little to arrive suffered a salmonelosis that put him in check.
