Nainggolan not afraid to rub salt into wounds of Juventus fans


Radja Nainggolan was not afraid to pile further misery upon Juventus fans who had watched their side lose 4-1 in the Champions League final on Sunday morning.

The Bianconeri could not match Real Madrid’s attacking firepower at the Millennium Stadium, with Cristiano Ronaldo’s brace, plus goals from Casemiro and Marcos Asensio sealing the result despite a picturesque Mario Mandzukic bicycle kick in the first half.

It was the second time in three seasons that Juve had made it to the Champions League final only to fall short and Roma’s Nainggolan – who openly admits to hating the Old Lady – took to social media in order to rub further salt into the fresh wounds of their supporters.

“What a wonderful evening,” he said in a video posted on Instagram.

“I am in the training retreat with my national team, unfortunately others are already on vacation. There are those who are on retreat, those on vacation and those who had a day trip to Cardiff.

“I made this video to reply to some who had insulted me and talked beforehand – you don’t do that. You never talk before the event.

“I just wanted to see if the same people who said those things would reply to me now. I made this video for the Juventus fans, but maybe it’s too expensive to be connected this long. They already spent so much during the game.

“Three days ago you were bigging yourselves up, so what do you say now?”

Juventus claimed the Serie A title in 2016-17 after finishing four points clear of Nainggolan’s Roma side in second place.
