Ag. Pellegrini: “He’s destined to improve”.


Giampiero Pocetta, the agents of Roma’s Lorenzo Pellegrini and Gregoire Defrel, who’s on loan at Sampdoria, was interviewed by RMC Sport. These are his words:

On Pellegrini.
Lorenzo is doing well, his qualities were already well-known. However, in life you also need a bit of luck and he’s started to find his role, we hope he continues in this way as he’s destined to improve. Di Franceso and he have known each other for a few years, they know each others’ strengths and weaknesses, but the manager is making him a better player.

Defrel?
He had many problems in Rome, including several injuries. He’s getting on well at Samp and has the quality to do well. The manager is playing to his strengths; Ferrero was the first person to call me after last season ended and wanted to inquire if there was any chance he could land him. He had other offers, but the player made the choice. He liked the environment and the project at the club and Samp is proving to be the right club for him. He seems to have overcome the issues he had at Roma so I’m not shocked by the start to his season.
