On December 20, Radja Nainggolan terminated his contract with Antwerp in mutual consultation with the club. Two days ago he responded for the first time and on Wednesday the 34-year-old midfielder was having fun again.
“It’s a shame it has to end like this,” Nainggolan wrote on Instagram. “I just want to say that I (at Antwerp, ed.) got to know a lot of good people: the medical staff, the white and the mon and our team manager Sascha (Van de Sande, ed.). Lots of good teammates too. The only thing I want to say to my teammates is that they have to keep fighting to reach our goal: Play-off 1. I wish my teammates all the best. That’s all.”
On Wednesday, the Great Old made an appeal on the social media channels. Antwerp is looking for drivers for the RAFC Academy. And who applied (laughing)? Raja Nainggolan.

Nainggolan has not yet thought of stopping. He wants to play football for at least another year and a half. He will be 36 after the 2023-2024 season. Only then does he want to hang the shoes on the hook. In the meantime, he is also focusing more and more on his post-career. For example, last year he founded RadLab, a company that specializes in the rental of private jets, luxury yachts and exclusive villas, among other things.
