Ghana midfielder, Alfred Duncan, says Serie A side, Cagliari, made him feel wanted at the club, that’s why he joined them on loan until the end of the season.
The 27-year-old signed a half season loan contract with the club from fellow Serie A side, Fiorentina, with an option to make the move permanent at the end of the season.
Duncan, who reunited with former coach, Eusebio Di Francesco, added that he played a big role in him deciding to join the club after not pinning down a starting place at Fiorentina.
He worked with Di Francesco during his time at Sassuolo and believes he’ll help him put his career back on track.
“I was wanted. Apart from the coach, other members of the club also made me feel this way: president, sporting director and players,” he said, as quoted by footballghana.com.
“That gave me an extra boost. In my head, I wanted to work with a coach who I knew, that he knows what my faults are and that he could help me right now.
“I think the coach can improve me even more as he has done in the past.”
The former Inter Milan man made his Cagliari debut last Monday in their 2-0 home defeat to AC Milan; he played 68 minutes of the game before he was substituted off.
