Radja Nainggolan: I always planned Cagliari return

Radja Nainggolan says he wants to do "something special" for Cagliari.

The midfielder has returned to his old club on-loan from Inter Milan.

He said, “I already had in mind about coming back when I left five years ago, but I didn't think it'd come so soon. Sometimes situations arise that make your decision easier.

“A desire to write an important page in the club's history and events outside of football facilitated my choice. I'm only on loan, but if President decides to buy me...

“I've made my life and I always think I've done well. The rest isn't for me to say. I remember my road here well. I had an excellent rapport with the group and there are some good players here.

“I'll make myself available to the team. I talked to [Coach Rolando] Maran on the phone and he has clear ideas, you'll see.

“I'm fired up and I accepted Inter's decision: it's up to me to prove that they were wrong. I came here because I think we can aim high: survival is the priority, but with this team we can dare to dream."
