De Jong: All the best Strootman

Nigel De Jong has wished Roma man Kevin Strootman all the best after it was revealed the midfielder will miss the rest of the season.

The Giallorossi man will be out for the remainder of the campaign, and this summer’s World Cup, after it was confirmed he damaged knee ligaments in Sunday’s loss to Napoli.

And his international teammate has offered sympathy via social networking this afternoon.

“Kevin Strootman, I wish you all the best for a speedy recovery,” he posted on Twitter.

“I know you’ll have the courage to come back stronger than before. Never give up.”
