Andrea Pirlo, Sampdoria coach, analyzes the third consecutive home defeat with bowls still, this time by Cittadella.
“Bad performance, after taking the lead at the end of the first half we should have started strongly in the second half and instead we conceded the equalizer straight away. When we play at home we always feel a bit of pressure, at the first mistake our heads drop also due to the waste from the players years have passed and then it is difficult to play with clarity. However, it is a journey that we must follow, we must raise our heads and try to emerge as a team even from moments of difficulty. This is why we are here, we continue to work.”
On the public who have never lacked support: “We always feel the warmth of our fans, unfortunately at the moment we are suffering because there are so many young people and we lack the ability to play with this pressure. However, we need to make a change because time passes quickly and we don’t have time to wait for anyone.”
On the next match: “Now we prepare to face a strong team like Parma. We have to reset quickly and work as best we can for our next opponents, because it won’t be an easy match.”
