Strootman: ‘Back in February’

Roma midfielder Kevin Strootman announces he will return to training “in mid-February”.

The Dutch international has missed most of the last two seasons with a series of knee injuries, but is nearing a return to action.

“I feel much better,” Strootman said at a meeting with fans.

“I’ll play a short match with the Primavera, then return to training with the first-team in mid-February.

“I hope to return to playing with my teammates soon. My goal is to win something in this shirt, and give a trophy to the fans because they deserve it.”
