Sampdoria head coach Marco Giampaolo feels that Inter-owned midfielder Stefano Sensi has done well to settle in quickly on loan with the Blucerchiati after limited playing time over the first part of the season.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster DAZN after his team’s 3-1 defeat to Juventus yesterday, Giampaolo praised Sensi for the quality of his play since joining on loan in January.
Sensi left on a dry loan until the end of the campaign during the January transfer window, with his aim to regain his best form with more regular playing time.
The 26-year-old had not managed to appear regularly in a Nerazzurri shirt over the first half of the season, as injuries disrupted his progress and he failed to get ahead of other options in his position on a regular basis when fit.
Now, the midfielder is at the centre of Giampaolo’s new-look Sampdoria project, and the coach is pleased with how he has been playing in his first few weeks in Liguria.
“He arrived and he was fine,” he said of the midfielder, “he had two excellent matches. He had an injury problem and was out for a week.”
“He arrived from Inter without match rhythm,” the coach continued. “In the last few matches up to this week he’s looked better physically. I think he can improve his condition over time.”
