Radja and Riana Nainggolan are unique: they are the only twins in their respective clubs in the first division are active, Raja at AS Roma and Riana at Res Roma.

Riana plays soccer, but since last summer, but she is great to her sentence: ‘I can’t describe how happy I am to get back together with Radja and in this fantastic city in which to live. Sometimes my brother picks me up at training, to the great amusement of my team mates and all the children around. That would, of course, piece by piece, with him on the photo. I think Raja that itself is even more fun than they are.’

The twins have already seen and done. Father Marianus, an Indonesian, had his Belgian wife Lizy Bogaerts in the lurch when the kids were little. A year and a half ago, only saw Raja his pa back in Indonesia. “The excuses that he was in the came up, sounded hollow to me. He talked and talked, but I could only to my mother, to think that so many efforts have been made to the family above water.’

In October 2010, lost Lizy the fight against cancer. Raja: “After all the problems we had to overcome in the past, I found it very sad that they are not more experienced that I in the Champions League and the Red Devils play football. Just before she died, she asked me to make for my sister and for the family. I want her not to disappoint.’
