Strootman excited by Italy challenge

Kevin Strootman is relishing the chance to have a crack at Serie A after joining Roma from PSV Eindhoven.

I am very excited to be able to play for this great club.

It is the next stage in my career development after being at Sparta, FC Utrecht and PSV, a club at which I had a lot of fun."

What counts for me is the number of big games I am going to play here.

I will train every day with top players and get to play against the likes of Inter Milan, Juventus and Napoli.
