Sampdoria head coach Roberto D’Aversa has expressed regret that his side were unable to defeat Inter when the Nerazzurri travelled to face them at the Marassi last weekend.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster DAZN after his side’s 3-0 win away to Empoli today, the Italian tactician gave the view that his team had the chance for a better result than a draw after Inter went down to ten men.
At the end of last weekend’s match between Inter and Sampdoria the impression was left that a draw was a fair result, with Inter having twice taken the lead before Sampdoria fought to peg them back on both occasions.
However, the Nerazzurri had to hold on for a point towards the end, having gone down to ten men, not through a sending off but because midfielder Stefano Sensi had to leave the pitch with a knee injury after head coach Simone Inzaghi had already made all of his substitutions.
D’Aversa related this to how he wants his team to play, stating “Today I asked for a show of maturity and I must say that we face any team with the intent to try and win. Even against Inter, for example, when we had a numerical superiority with Sensi out, we should have taken the three points home.”
