Radja Nainggolan believes Cagliari "deserve more attention" following a 5-2 home victory over Fiorentina to put them temporarily in third.
"We are doing something incredible, nobody would have said at the beginning of the year that we could play so well. There is an enthusiasm that hasn't been seen at Cagliari for years," the Belgian told Sky Sport Italia.
The Sardinian side's win moves them to joint third in the table with Lazio, awaiting Roma's trip to Parma.
"We are in an extraordinary position, we always talk about the big clubs, but we too deserve to be given a few more pages in the newspapers.
"We must keep our feet on the ground. We know that being up there is unthinkable, there are stronger teams than us, but perhaps they have less hunger."
Nainggolan has scored two goals and provided three assists since returning on loan to Cagliari in the summer.
