Strootman: “A tough loss.”

Kevin Strootman to Rai after the defeat of Roma:

What went wrong tonight?
It was a tough loss, we did not play our best game. We did not start badly and we created an opportunity right away. It was difficult to create anything tonight. They got a goal and we were put behind, from there it was difficult to do more. Unfortunately, that’s the way it is.
