(Post-match) Sabatini: “Oddly, Roma won. My return? I can exclude it”.


Sampdoria director Walter Sabatini in the mixed zone after Sampdoria 0-1 Roma:

Both sides could’ve won.
Oddly, Roma won, we are not so happy with the context of the episodes against Roma. I had some slight suspicion that all was not as it should have been. But oh well, Roma march forward as they rightly should because Italian football isn’t the same when Roma isn’t a protagonist.

Do you know who will be the next sporting director of Roma?
I might, but I wouldn’t ever tell you.

Would you exclude a return to Roma?
Yes, I exclude it.

Is Ferrero selling?
The day Ferrero tells me he has sold Samp, I will step aside without discussion.

The regret from tonight is huge.
We deserved another result, we didn’t deserve to lose it but I only have good things to say to the team.
