Kevin Strootman played key role in Gini Wijnaldum’s decision to join Roma

Former Roma midfielder Kevin Strootman is said to have played a key role in Gini Wijnaldum’s decision to join the capital club.

The two ex-teammates from their days at PSV reportedly held numerous conversations over recent weeks as negotiations between Roma and PSG progressed.

Corriere dello Sport claims that Strootman’s positive feedback regarding the Giallorossi as a concrete option for Wijnaldum helped steer the ex-Liverpool man toward the Italian capital.

Wijnaldum himself said that Strootman and Mohamed Salah’s recommendations about a move to Roma proved to be pivotal in his final decision.
