Nainggolan partying at disco is a big deal now? That's how he lives his life. The four plus years at Roma...
Take it or leave it. Radja Nainggolan is made this way, for better or worse. Excessive, sometimes even extreme, certainly always transparent, one that does not hide from anything or anyone because he thinks that life should be lived like this, with openness and chest out.
So, it is not surprising that him being at the disco last Friday night agitated the waters a bit in the world of Inter. Those waters were previously created waves in Roma and now have moved to Milan. But let’s be clear: Nainggolan was hurt and he knew that he would not be part of the trip to Reggio Emilia where Inter were defeated by Sassuolo. To many, especially on social media, they did not take this episode very well especially after a defeat. So yesterday evening, Ninja went on Instagram to respond with a picture of him training and with these words attached: “Working to get ready, all the rest is bullshit.”
That evening, Nainggolan was a guest at “La Casa Loca” disco in Dalmine (Bergamo), accompanied by his wife Claudio and the former king of the paparazzi Fabrizio Corona. It was a long evening, made of music, a few drinks, selfies and videos, including one of a fan who asked him to “go home and sleep, you have a game to play tomorrow.” To which Radja replied with the middle finger. In short, an evening like this happened many times in his four and a half years in Rome but this is a novelty as an Inter player. The next morning, the Belgian presented himself at Pinetina for training with the same clothes on.
Even in Rome, Radja was often a guest of discos in the center of the city, Eur or Ostia (during the summer where he lived near the sea in Casal Palocco) or some private parties that were organized by his hotel. “I go to the disco, I do not want to stay home every night. I enjoy life,” he said. On the field, Nainggolan always gave his soul, often resulting the best version of himself. Inter did not see any issue in this because he was at training as expected. Spalletti, in Rome, sometimes slept with Radja at Trigoria (where Roma training facility is located) to wake him up at a reasonable time.
“Radja is like that. He can find the right balance by doing a little of this or that, eating a bit less, drinking a bit less, giving fewer kisses. Instead, he eats a lot, he also runs a lot, gives away many kisses. That’s how he finds balance.” Maybe they don't need spending some nights at Pinetina together...
