Samp: 'Can Montella continue?'

Sampdoria director Carlo Osti apologised to fans after a 3-0 Genoa Derby defeat. “Vincenzo Montella must tell us if this project can continue.”

The Blucerchiati were crushed as the ‘home’ team by a Suso brace and Leonardo Pavoletti strike.

“The fans were absolutely right to protest. The club apologises to the supporters for a game that was not up to Samp standards,” director of sport Osti told Mediaset Premium.

“This is a very ugly page of our failed season. The club did everything it could and there was nothing more we could do. The results were not visible and with cool heads we will evaluate the situation.”

Is Coach Montella going to be sacked or released amid reports he’s in the running for the Milan or even Italy jobs?

“We will evaluate the situation, but he is the first person who said he wasn’t sure this project could continue. Now he must tell us if he thinks it can continue.

“I know the importance of this game all too well. It could’ve given a different meaning to our season.

“Clearly everyone at the club expected a different second half to the season when Montella replaced Walter Zenga. I evaluated what happened today and for the rest we have several days to evaluate.

“I think today the team was lacking in every area. We seemed surprised by Genoa’s aggressive approach.”
