Schouten: 'Roma not all that'

Bologna midfielder Jerdy Schouten wasn’t impressed with Roma in the aftermath of their 3-2 win. “If you see their names you think they are important, but when you get up close, you realise they aren’t.”

The Rossoblu emerged with a 3-2 win against the side from the capital last Friday, and Schouten says the Giallorossi aren’t what they seem.

“If you look in advance to see who your opponents are, you think that they are important names,” Schouten told Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf.

“Then you play against them and you realise they aren’t.

“I didn’t think ‘oh, there is Henrikh Mkhitaryan next to me’.”

Bologna’s win against Roma closed the gap between the sides to six points.
