Nainggolan determined to succeed despite inconsistent start at Inter


Radja Nainggolan was one of several Inter players who spoke to the media in the immediate aftermath of the Nerazzurri’s comfortable 3-1 victory over Frosinone at the Stadio Benito Stirpe last night. Here is what the Belgian midfielder had to say:

“These matches are difficult, particularly when you sit back. They threatened us, especially when it was 2-1. However, we did well once again to keep the ball and seal the win. I’ve always tried to give my all. Unfortunately, I’ve had some injuries so I’ve not yet managed to give what I wanted to, although the important thing is to know that I’ve always tried my best.

“It’s a real head-to-head against Roma, both for us and them. I have plenty of good memories from my time at Rome and I still have many friends there. However, I’m an Inter player and I must give my all for this shirt, even if I respect where I’ve been in the past.”

Matías Vecino spoke to Inter TV after scoring the final goal, and was full of praise for the manner in which his teammates managed the game in the closing stages: “We had some moments of difficulty in which they came into the game but we wrapped it up at the end.

“Borja plays shorter balls and I need to stay closer to him, Brozović looks for more through balls. I adapt to the teammate next to me and I look to do my best for the team. In these past two years, the team has made steps forward and we need to keep closing the gap on those ahead of us but we’ve improved a lot.

“We have a decent advantage but it’s a direct match-up now against Roma. We need to win that in order to get closer to our goal.”
