Cagliari, Nainggolan: “I wanted to end my career at Roma”.

John Solano

Current Cagliari and former Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan was interviewed by La Repubblica and spoke about his past with the Giallorossi. Here’s what the Belgian had to say:

Did you think about becoming a bandiera at Roma?
It’s difficult after Totti and De Rossi. But if you want to know if I had thought about ending my career in Rome, I can calmly say yes. I was happy there, I gave my soul, I had everything I wanted. It was a huge disappointment to leave.

Do you like the team they have today?
I think it’s a little more difficult today because it’s a team that has few players with personality. It takes “balls” to play in Rome: everything is beautiful there, but when things go wrong and they whistle you, you need to have character. Many strong players have been impaled by that.
