Inter owned striker Samuele Longo, who scored against AS Pisa in Venezia’s 2-1 win over the side earlier today, discussed the win in an interview with Italian broadcaster DAZN after the game.
“Great teamwork, we suffered the first half hour, we were good to resist, we hit at the right time, we suffered in the final moments, but we made it.”
The 28-year-old Italian striker then spoke about his goal.
“The goal? A nice assist from Aramu, then I scored with my right foot. I’m fine here, they welcomed me well, this victory gives us a lot of awareness for the continuation of the season. The standings are tight, we need to give continuity to our results so we can take satisfaction away.”
Finally, Longo discussed his rise in quality since joining Venezia last month.
“I didn’t expect this as a kid, I’m fine in Venice, in the future we’ll talk about things at the end of the season.”
Longo has been with Inter his whole career, being a product of the club’s youth development. However, he has only ever made two first team appearances for the Nerazzurri, instead being sent out on loan since the summer of 2012. He has spent time with Espanyol, Hellas Verona, Rayo Vallecano, Cagliari, Frosinone, Girona, Tenerife, Huesca, Cremonese, Deportivo La Coruna and now Venezia.
Longo has scored two in his first four appearances for the Serie B side, looking incredibly dangerous whilst on the ball. His most prolific season was the 2016/17 season with Girona in the Spanish second division, where he scored 14 goals in 35 games.
