Inter Milan midfielder Nainggolan: I didn't like what Monchi said about me

Inter Milan midfielder Radja Nainggolan has had a pop at Sevilla chief Monchi.

Monchi sold Nainggolan to Inter when he was still running things with AS Roma.

Nainggolan said, “I had a very open rapport with him. He'd often call in six or seven most representative players and we'd all together talk about what was best for the club and the squad.

“I felt important to the club. Then, I found out some of the things he'd been saying about me and I didn't appreciate those… Just three days after he left Roma, the club he claimed to be in love with, he already had a deal for his return to Sevilla. That tells you a lot…

“Without Monchi, I could in theory have still been at Roma, or perhaps at another club anyway, because it's possible Roma wanted to send me elsewhere.

“I chose my own destination because Luciano Spalletti pushed to have me and Inter represented the right decision."
