Zapata thunders: “A crucial win, this gives us confidence”

He’s hit double figures, equalling his record in Serie A, and there’s still plenty of time to add to it yet. Duvan Zapata is the hero of Bergamo, just as he was in Rome, Sampdoria’s last away win before their result on Tuesday. His roar after beating Berisha for the winning goal is symbolic of Samp’s return.

“I am happy to have scored, but above all I’m happy for the squad”, said the towering Colombian, “we needed this result after the three defeats. It is a clean slate after the last few performances.”

Atalanta are not an easy scalp to come by, but they are the kind of team to beat if Samp wants to keep up the chase for European football.

The striker went on: “this win will spur us on in our campaign. It gives us confidence for the final stages of the season. The team gathering was important. We kept our heads in the game, we learned from the Chievo match. We want to win the matches we have left. I hope that in the derby we can make the fans happy, and the club too. We all deserve it.”
