Now his two sons have come through the Milan academy, while Paolo returned as a director.

Nainggolan: Wanted to retire at Roma

Radja Nainggolan admits he wanted to retire at Roma, claims the current side lack ‘personality’ and would replay the Liverpool semi-final “10,000 times”.

Nainggolan seemed on his way to becoming a Roma icon after Francesco Totti and Daniele De Rossi, but the club opted to cash in on the midfielder, selling him to Inter in the summer of 2018.

“Playing Roma will certainly have an effect on me,” continued the Cagliari midfielder to La Repubblica ahead of his return to the Olimpico on Sunday.
