Following Rick Karsdorp’s decision to ultimately skip group training in yesterday’s session despite being listed among the players called up for team activities at Trigoria, former Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini criticized the Dutchman’s attitude in an appearance at Sky Calcio Club.
“Karsdorp has made a grave mistake. He’s a team player and must respect and follow the rules of the team,” said the Italian director.
“He may be a bit upset with the situation but he’s got no right to avoid the rules imposed by the club.”
“If I were handling this as a sporting director, I think I would found myself in a difficult position, and not because of a potential transfer looming over him, but purely based on a human relationship standpoint.”
