Radja Nainggolan doesn’t regret leaving Roma for Chelsea in the summer, indicating his future is with the Serie A side, ESPN reports.
The midfielder has excelled since joining the Italian club as his impact for our opposition tomorrow has been huge. As ESPN note, Nainggolan’s performances over the last two years have reportedly attracted interest from Chelsea, not just this past summer.
When speaking at a news conference earlier today, the Belgian is adamant that he has never thought of leaving Roma, not just for Chelsea but for any team in the world.
Nainggolan is quoted by ESPN saying:
“I made my choice and I’ve never even thought of being somewhere else. The question [of regretting not being a Chelsea player] makes no sense.”
Hopefully the Blues can stop the 29-year-old in his tracks as we play Roma on Tuesday night in the Champions League.
A win against Nainggolan’s team tomorrow could be enough to qualify for the next round of the Champions League. This depends on the result of the other group’s match between Atletico Madrid and Qarabag.
This would also be our fourth consecutive win if we take all three points from the Stadio Olimpico.
