In the wake of Roma’s 2-0 victory over Udinese yesterday, we focused three key takeaways from the Giallorossi’s third straight win. In addition to the continuing heroics of Cengiz Ünder and the solid play of Federico Fazio, Kostas Manolas and even Juan Jesus at the back, Radja’ Nainggolan’s complete control of the midfield was front and center in Roma’s victory yesterday.
Unfortunately for me, I only just found this video posted by the folks at Breaking the Lines, but it’s worth another look because it shows just how instrumental Nainggolan was in all facets of the game—creating, controlling, retaining the ball and even switching play. Check out their Twitter feed, they have loads of videos like these from a variety of leagues/teams.
The notion that Roma would or should sell this guy is just absurd. Enjoy!

He narrowly avoided a move to China last month, and for good reason. At 29, Nainggolan is still one of the most dynamic midfielders in calcio. pic.twitter.com/Un1w3gEYyd
