Roma midfielder Pellegrini: We're all sorry to see Strootman leave

AS Roma midfielder Lorenzo Pellegrini admits there's disappointment over the departure of Kevin Strootman.

Strootman is set to sign for Olympique Marseille today in a €25m deal.

Before last night's 3-3 draw with Atalanta, Pellegrini said: "We're sorry, Kevin was one of us, so we're sorry, but today we have an important game, and now we have one more important thing to think about.

"Strootman will always remain a friend of ours. But it's a fact that he has been sold."
