Sampdoria’s Emil Audero unhappy about Roma loss, laments Pellegrini’s penalty

Andy Mattioli

Sampdoria shot-stopper Emil Audero sounded unhappy with his team’s result in tonight’s loss against Roma at the Ferraris stadium in Genova, especially given Roma’s win stemmed from Lorenzo Pellegrini successfully converting a penalty kick in the opening ten minutes of the match.

“Unfortunately we come out of this match with no points to show for our performance,” Audero said in a post-match interview with Sampdoria’s official channels. “This pains us a lot because our position in the league table is far from ideal and we desperately need points.”

“But, I’m sure that we will be able to get out of this situation. Having a penalty kick called in your favour in the opening minutes of a game will make life easier for any team,” he added. “It influences the overall feeling that then continues throughout the game.”

“That way everything started uphill for us, and downhill for Roma. Overall it was a balanced match,” he concluded.
