Kevin Strootman: I want to help the team, I won’t speak of other teams

Roma midfielder Kevin Strootman spoke to Sky Sports this afternoon, here are his words:

“I want to play and return to my levels. I signed here for 5 years, but up until now I’ve only played 6 or 7 months. I want to play and help the team, this is important to me. United? If I talk about other clubs it means I’m failing to show respect – I don’t want to do this. I’ve worked 8 months to return, I didn’t play well against Sassuolo and got it wrong when I entered in Moscow. After the break, I’ve trained with more confidence. I feel better physically. I’m getting back to 100% – I have yet to arrive there but I’m getting closer.”
