De Zerbi: ‘Test of maturity’

Benevento Coach Roberto De Zerbi labels today’s clash with Sampdoria as a ‘test of maturity’ for his side.

Le Streghe finally won for the first time this season last weekend, although they remain rock bottom of the Serie A table and 11 points adrift of safety.

Speaking ahead of his team’s home match with the Blucerchiati, De Zerbi is convinced Benevento can secure another improbable victory.

“I want the team to show the same spirit as last Saturday in order to get a result,” the former Palermo boss told reporters.

“Obviously we can take no satisfaction [from where we are] but this is a test of maturity for individual players and the team.

“If we get to the ball first and we show the right toughness, we can get a result against Sampdoria.”
