Inter and Nainggolan have been together for months but this engagement has never resulted in a marriage. The club invested €39.2M for the Belgian and that move was criticized for the sale of Zaniolo and the idea of building a new Inter around a player who has decided games very little, has been seen even less so due to physical issues.
And now, Nainggolan is finally ready, medical and technical staff did well in the right direction and the game against Chievo will mark the end of the tunnel. Because in two months, Nainggolan only played for 187 minutes from the derby forward and so after this injury, the former Roma player must stay healthy for the remainder of the season. CIES points out how important Nainggolan is to this Inter team. With il Ninja on the pitch, Inter average 2.57 points per game, only 1.38 without, a gain of +1.19 points.
