Roma signing Strootman: Garcia talks convinced me

Kevin Strootman is delighted with his move to AS Roma.

The new Roma midfielder arrived from PSV Eindhoven last month.

"I didn't really know the Coach, but he is one of the reasons why I am here," the midfielder told the Gazzetta dello Sport.

"I spoke to him on a couple of occasions before I joined and I liked him. He filled me with enthusiasm by telling me how he wanted me to play.

"We are giving our maximum for him and I want to help him. I hope to become a leader at this club."
