Godin joined the Sardinians this summer from Inter Milan.
“From a club's point of view, given the economic problems in football, I say that in the end I'm happy the negotiations didn't go through, given the costs.
“I'm sorry that this negotiation of the last few days, last minute, has overshadowed the person which I believe is one of the most important signings in the history of Cagliari: Godin.
“Godin is a great player of high quality. He's a leader with a lot of experience and several triumphs behind him."
