Roma midfielder Kevin Strootman spoke to Dutch newspaper AD ahead of today’s match against Porto:
“I am still not yet in top form, but as you can see, I play without any restrictions. I trained with no problems throughout the summer. However, I should not talk too much and say that everything is fine, otherwise it brings bad luck
What do you think of this new Juventus?
Once again they took the best players from their competitors, both us and Napoli. A little like how Bayern does in Germany with Borussia Dortmund. Does it bother us? It is what it is, we’re not going to bother dwelling on it. They will also have the best players on paper, but we can beat anyone and we are not afraid of anyone.
he is a true Italian, he is always involved in the emotional portion of thing, but he is also always very direct and very clear. It is good for us.
In the first league match against Udinese you wore the captain’s armband, how did you feel?
I do not know how many more times you will see me as this again. We have three captains: Totti, De Rossi and Florenzi. None of the three played so the armband came to me. It was a great honor, of course, but the goal is to play for 90 minutes. Now I’m really happy.
