Nainggolan: ‘Roma need patience’

Radja Nainggolan urged Roma fans to have “patience, as we are not robots” following a 0-0 Champions League draw with Atletico Madrid.

“This point is important to give us confidence,” the midfielder told Mediaset Premium.

“In the first half we had a few chances, the draw is a good result against an important side.”

The Giallorossi have stuttered so far under Eusebio Di Francesco, scraping a 1-0 win away to Atalanta and losing 3-1 at home to Inter.

“We are only at the start of the season with a new Coach and it’ll take a little time for us to be at 100 per cent for the entire match. We’re settling into the new systems and the only way to improve is with work.

“It takes time and patience to get things working perfectly, as we are not robots. We keep working and hope things improve.”
