Nainggolan was on fire for Cagliari as the Rossoblu impressively demolished Fiorentina to move up to fourth in Serie A ahead of the likes of Atalanta, Roma, and Napoli.

Each of his three of assists showed a class that makes one wonder why Roma and Inter were not as keen as they should have been to retain his services. The first was a stabbed pass threaded through the middle, as was the third, while the second in between was a flashed cross along the six-yard box for Giovanni Simeone to flick home.

The Belgian's best moment was yet to come, however, as he added another screamer to his portfolio with a wonder strike into the top corner from 30 yards.

Defensively, he recovered the ball seven times for the hosts, and completed 31 out of 37 passes.
