Inter midfielder Radja Nainggolan has spoken out about the lack of game time he received at Inter whilst Antonio Conte was in charge, according to a report in the Italian media today.

Speaking during an interview with Sky Sport in Italy, the Belgian midfielder explained how he is not the sort of player who doesn’t start games. He feels he should always be starting rather than getting a few minutes as a substitute like he was under Radja Nainggolan.

“I have always been a starter and I don’t know what it means to start from last to go on. Maybe I’m more of a match player than a training player.”

Radja Nainggolan went on to discuss how much he loves living in Sardinia. He played 124 games for Cagliari between 2010 and 2014 before moving to AS Roma, but he has then spent the last two seasons back on loan at the Sardinian club.

“I spent six and a half years here, life is great in Sardinia. It’s an island, it’s not like all big cities. Here there is a peace that in few places can be found.”

He is now trying to secure a permanent move to Cagliari once again to continue his island lifestyle, and the clubs are reportedly very close on the agreement and the severance pay issue.
