Giampaolo breaks down loss: “Disappointed but we won’t give up”

Sampdoria’s loss this afternoon against fellow European contenders Atalanta was a bitter blow to take, not least for Blucerchiati head coach Marco Giampaolo.

“It was a tough, intense game, in which any result was possible,” the head coach commented.

Samp came close to a late equaliser through Albin Ekdal’s header, but the Swede was denied by a top-class save from the visiting keeper.

“Atalanta took their chances better than us. They were strong opposition and we played well against them, but it wasn’t enough. A draw would’ve been a fair result.”

The Doria head coach wasn’t hiding his disappointment at today’s loss but nevertheless looked at the rest of the season in a positive frame of mind.

“We were out on our feet at the end,” Giampaolo concluded. “We’re disappointed by the loss, but we must keep our focus high. We must not give up and we have to continue playing our football. It’s a tough defeat, but it’s not over. We must continue playing right until the end.”
