Luis Muriel believes a prolonged half-time break hurt Sampdoria in their dramatic defeat to Roma.
The Colombian forward cancelled out Mohamed Salah’s early goal to level the score at 1-1, before Fabio Quagliarella gave the Blucerchiati a half-time lead.
However, the start of the second period was delayed after a severe hailstorm caused flooding on the Stadio Olimpico pitch, meaning the interval lasted a total of 80 minutes.
