AS Roma coach Rudi Garcia says the players are thinking of Kevin Strootman after victory over Udinese.

The night was dedicated to Strootman, who is out for the rest of the season and will undergo knee ligament surgery tomorrow.

"He knows how we feel and we sent many messages to Kevin. We await him and hope we can achieve Champions League qualification for him to play in that tournament with us next season," said Garcia.
