The words of Carlo Osti

Sampdoria Technical Director Carlo Osti spoke to the microphones of Sky Sport in the post-match of Spezia-Sampdoria.

“I am here to say that at the resumption, with Monza at home, there will definitely still be Marco Giampaolo sitting on the bench. In fact, not really him, because of the two-day disqualification hoping that one will be taken away from him, but he will still be there. Surely the numbers are merciless, two points after seven games are very few, but we also have to evaluate today’s performance, which in my opinion was very different from the other two away games we lost in Salerno and Verona.”

“The team created goal chances in the second half against a very good opponent like Spezia. Then, many evaluations can be made, because you cannot take a goal after going ahead 30 seconds earlier, moreover in the second half we were in control of the game and it seemed that Spezia was more tired than in the first 45 minutes. All evaluations that we will make on Tuesday when the team resumes training. There will be a discussion with the coach and the team, the full company will be present and we will make the evaluations internally.”

Will the remedy for the technical deficiency come in the January soccer market session?

We will see how we get to January, whether new scenarios will open up for the club. We have Winks who was perhaps the most important purchase and for one reason or another until now he has not played and we count on him being on the field after the break. Otherwise certainly the team has deficiencies. But again, tonight’s game in my opinion should be read differently than the other two away games. I do analysis for away and home games. We get into a bit of a slump against teams that man-mark and litter the game, and many times we can’t figure out game situations quickly. But these are technical analyses that we will do with the coach. Today Sampdoria gave everything they could give, then it’s a defeat that stings because we were playing a delicate game.
