Spalletti dying for Nainggolan to return. Status for Torino...
Luciano Spalletti is dying for Nainggolan to come back. The Belgian missed almost all preseason and also the first official match of the year versus the Neroverdi. Inter already seem to be a Ninja-dependent team due to his unique characteristics that allow him to play as a trequartista in a 4-2-3-1 formation, something that Lautaro is not able to do (yet). With Nainggolan, linking midfield and attack, Sassuolo midfield would not have such an easy time like on Sunday.
Yesterday, the player once again trained by himself which he will continue today on an off day for the rest of the team. His return to group training is expected at some point this week (likely on Wednesday) and so is a call-up for Torino match. However, it is difficult to see him playing from the first minute.
