Kevin Strootman does NOT want to talk about Manchester United post Russia rout [Video]
Whilst out in Israel for the Under-21 European Championships we had the opportunity to meet with Strootman in the Mixed Zone after Holland’s 5-1 rout of Russia.
Manchester United chief scout Jim Lawlor was in attendance for Holland U21s 5-1 thrashing of Russia. Reportedly to watch Strootman.
Strootman was very keen NOT to talk about a possible move to Manchester United, getting a little irate when he saw we were filming the conversation.
Some Manchester United fans have suggested that Strootman’s wry smile in the early part of the conversation suggests he will end up at Old Trafford.
From our perspective, Strootman is a pretty scary man when he gets angry and we weren’t too keen to pursue the line of questioning!
Intriguingly, Dutch journalists informed us this evening that there will be news in the coming hours concerning Holland Under-21 midfielder Marco van Ginkel who has been heavily linked with Chelsea.
Footage of Kevin Strootman refusing to talk about a move to Manchester United is below.
