“I think it is very unnecessary. If you’re up against ten-man plays and it is 1-1 then you try for the second goal. You will ultimately fail and then you will get him eventually. That is very acidic on a sad evening,” said Strootman opposite Fox Sports.

The contest in the French port city was finished without the public. Olympique was by the UEFA penalised for riots during the lost in the final to the Europa League against Atlético Madrid.

“It feels like a practice game,” said Strootman. “It is, of course, for both teams bored. You have no home advantage. That is no excuse. It does not have the experience of how a real Europe League match.”
