Strootman suspended two matches, Roma to appeal

Kevin Strootman has been disqualified for two match days.

This is the decision of the sporting judge that was handed down early this evening as he cited Strootman’s actions as “severely disastrous conduct” for his dive on the penalty decision awarded to Roma. The midfielder will be forced to skip the matches against Milan and Juventus, but Roma is ready to take action and appeal, which will likely be heard before the match against Milan.
