Leggo: Strootman may start against Sassuolo


Today’s edition of Leggo claims Dutch midfielder Kevin Strootman could be handed his first start for the Giallorossi after suffering a torn ACL last March in a matcha against Napoli.

The newspaper claims that after weeks of training and brief appearances against Torino and CSKA Moscow, Rudi Garcia could hand Strootman a nod in his starting lineup against Sassuolo, who sit 10th in the Serie A table. With the possible entrance of the Dutchman in Garcia’s starting XI, Radja Nainggolan may be given a rest ahead of next week’s decisive Champions League match against Manchester City.
