Sabatini: “Defrel found the right environment at Samp”.

Former Roma and current Sampdoria director Walter Sabatini spoke to These are his words:

Here at Sampdoria, he has found the right environment, he was accepted immediately. He is overcoming some physical problems that he had at Roma, but today he is playing with great enthusiasm and this allows him to score great goals. Beyond the two goals, he played a great match.

They have a great team, with great players. The fans must trust Di Francesco, but I say this in a distracted manner because I’m busy with Sampdoria. I have the best thoughts on the Giallorossi but I do not think it is appropriate to go into details.
