Naithan Nandez has revealed he texted Diego Godin to convince him to join Cagliari last summer.

“I sent Diego many text messages to convince him to join us,” Nandez told Videolina.
“I told him about the many beautiful things of Sardinia, he also appreciates both the sea and the countryside.”
Nandez is a compatriot of Godin with the pair who have been playing together for Uruguay national neam.
“Diego is the captain of the national team, but he is above all a friend.
“After his experiences with Atlético and Inter, he wanted a place to feel important. Cagliari is perfect for him. His experience and his quality as a top player are fundamental for us.”
