Spalletti: ‘Inter were missing Nainggolan’

Luciano Spalletti welcomed Radja Nainggolan to Inter and confirmed tactical changes. “He is the turbine we were missing.”

The midfielder is reunited with his former Roma Coach and was greeted by fans outside the hotel this evening, ahead of his medical tomorrow morning.

He’ll make the move for €24m cash plus Davide Santon and Nicolò Zaniolo to the Stadio Olimpico.

“He is the turbine we were missing, the extra head of steam,” Spalletti told Sky Sport Italia.

“The fact that the moment he was put on the market by Roma, he chose us, is very pleasing. He has everything to battle it out against any opponent. He is the Ninja.

“It also pleases players to see the masses of people who run to support Inter in every stadium, because this love goes beyond the result.”

Inter have revamped this summer with the arrival of Stefan de Vrij and Kwadwo Asamoah as free agents from Lazio and Juventus respectively.

“I was asked if the arrival of De Vrij means we’ll move to three at the back and I can confirm that is the case.”
