Gazzetta dello Sport reports briefly on the players’ return to training, singling out Radja Nainggolan in particular, who has previously been in the news for all the wrong reasons.
“Radja Nainggolan has been very punctual at work. The Belgian midfielder must regain the confidence of Luciano Spalletti, who wanted him at all costs last Summer and is waiting for him on Sunday for Inter’s game against Benevento in the second round of the Coppa Italia at the San Siro. The Ninja could return to playing from the first minute even though there will be a lot of rotation for that game. Andrea Ranocchia could also play (he still has registered zero minutes this season) and Radja could put some minutes on the pitch in order to finally return to full fitness and regain his condition.”
All eyes have constantly been on Nainggolan as Spalletti put a lot of faith in the Belgian, only time will tell if Radja can show the world that he is still the machine that he has always been.
