Serie A debut for Lombardo Jr

Mattia Lombardo, the son of Sampdoria hero Attilio, made his Serie A debut for the Blucerchiati today.

“It was an incredible emotion for me,” the 19-year-old midfielder told Rai Sport after coming off the bench in a 4-0 defeat to Inter.

“To play in the stadium where my father won so much was very emotional, a real dream come true for me.”

Attilio Lombardo is currently in Turkey, working as part of Roberto Mancini’s Galatasaray staff.

“My father was watching the game from Istanbul with Mancini.”
