Marseile midfielder Strootman: I won't criticise Roma

Olympique Marseile midfielder Kevin Strootman has rejected the chance to criticise former club AS Roma.

There were suggestions last week that the Dutchman was sold by Roma against his will.

However, Strootman will not comment on the claims out of respect to his old club.

"I will not talk about the transfer. I have too much respect for Roma," insisted the midfielder.

Strootman has hit the ground running at Marseille, being named best afield for victory over AS Monaco last weekend.
