Strootman admits he’s looking forward to playing Europa League with AS Roma

by Richard Laverty

Kevin Strootman has indirectly played down talk of a January move to Manchester United by stating he is looking forward to playing Feyenoord in the Europa League.

His current side AS Roma were drawn against the Dutch side in Monday’s draw and the Netherlands international took to his Facebook page to look ahead to the game earlier today.

There had been suggestions that a move for Strootman may materialise in January with Roma out of the Champions League but it appears the midfielder is focusing fully on the job in hand at his current club at least until the summer.

Louis van Gaal is a big admirer of the player and reports suggest it would be a big surprise if the player didn’t become a United signing at the very least next summer.

Speaking on social media, Strootman said: “I’m really looking forward to play the two matches against Feyenoord in February. They are a young and talented team and are playing well. In a difficult group they have managed to qualify as group winners, which sums it all up.”

Albeit, a player under contract isn’t going to say anything to suggest he’ll be leaving his current employers but the 24-year-old has been booed by his own supporters since his return for injury for failing to rule out a move away from the club in the near future.
