‘Samp will get back on track’

Marco Giampaolo insists Sampdoria will get back on track after today’s disappointing defeat to Sassuolo.

A 1-0 loss at Marassi this afternoon means the Blucerchiati, after an excellent start to the Serie A season, have now failed to win in their last four Serie A matches.

“We are a little sloppier than usual in this period,” Giampaolo admitted when asked to explain his team’s slump in form

“This weekend there have been some strange results – us losing at home, Inter losing, Fiorentina drawing.

“That’s what this period is like. You can lose fluidity, you play more long balls than short and the conditions of the pitch don’t favour you.

“However, Sassuolo were better, I’m not looking for excuses.

“Having a run of form when you are less potent is part of the journey of a season. We’ll get back on track.”
