Claudio Ranieri sends new message to Radja Nainggolan

Reached by L’Unione Sarda, Claudio Ranieri unveiled the details of the negotiation that convinced him to return to Cagliari: “Gigi Riva in an interview said ‘Claudio is one of us,’ President Giulini was very insistent, the sporting director, administrator Carlo Catte came to the house. There was a pressing that led me to say: but why do I have to be selfish and not take risks? The memory of what happened more than 30 years ago, with the double promotion from C to A, will always remain, but there will be a new adventure that, I hope, can end like the one of so many years ago.”

Helping the club climb back into the top flight could be Radja Nainggolan. The midfielder has a very strong bond with Sardinia and the right conditions could be created for yet another comeback for the Ninja: “If Radja would drop into the climate of Serie B, changing his register….”

In closing, Ranieri spoke about Tommaso Giulini: “I knew him but not personally, now I’m working with him and I got the idea of a man who loves Cagliari, an entrepreneur who has spent a lot and has not reaped for what he has sown. I hope that I and the new sporting director Nereo Bonato can do our best to repay the passion and great efforts of President Giulini.”
