Stekelenburg believes the Italian side are a bigger club than Ajax.
“My family and I are convinced that we made the right choice,” Stekelenburg told Elf Voetbal.
“Are you asking me if this is a step forward? Yes, Roma are a bigger club than Ajax.
“Roma are a club of the people. You cannot walk on the street or go shopping normally here.
“They are ruthless in their criticisms when things don’t go well but on the other hand transmit an incredibly charge when things go well.
“I was ready for a new challenge.”
