Radja Nainggolan admits Inter Milan thought it would have been an easy ride against Frosinone after gaining a crucial win.
The Belgium international’s header had opened the scoring but Frosinone pulled one back to create a tense ending that eventually ended in a 3-1 victory at the Stadio Benito Stirpe.
“We thought it was a bit too easy, but these games are above all difficult when you relax. They work hard, are really aggressive and have a lot to lose, so they give everything.
“After it went to 2-1, we did well to hold on to the ball and add another goal to finish it,” the midfielder told Sky Sport Italia.
“Unfortunately, I’ve had a lot of injuries and so far at Inter I haven’t been able to give what I know that I can. I hope to start finding my form now.”
Next Saturday, Inter host Roma at San Siro in a crucial clash for the Champions League places.
“It’s a head-to-head for us and for Roma. I left a lot of friends there and have a great deal of respect for my past, but I am an Inter player and have to give my best for this jersey.”
A win for Inter in their next game would further strengthen their grip on the top four.
