Earlier today, Edoardo Bove pointed to former Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan as one of his idols.

In his lengthy interview with DAZN Talks, the young Giallorossi player referred to Nainggolan as someone he admired a great deal.

“In football terms, the Roma player that I remember very well, even quite recently, is Nainggolan. I really liked him for what he was able to bring to the table, and he was one of my favorite players ever. This is not to be trivial, because how can you say that you wouldn’t have wanted to share the locker room with De Rossi and Totti?”

In response to this compliment, Nainggolan wrote to Bove on Instagram, “You’d have loved playing with us and sharing our locker room. Keep being yourself.”
