Angelo Palombo: We expect an angry Roma

Sky Italia: Sampdoria captain Angelo Palombo spoke before the clash with Roma tomorrow, here are his words:

“Romagnoli? I already knew him from last season because he played in so many matches. If Garcia played him often, even at full-back, it means that he has quality. In our environment, he can grow well, he’s a ’95 (class) and we must help him in certain situations. But technically and tactically, he has impressed me. You realize his potential after seeing him play ever day. Do we expect an angry Roma? Yes, knowing the champions that they have they’ll look, for me, even more angry. Either way, it would have been an equally difficult match for us. We need to be awake and alert.”
