Depaoli: “The win is a release – now let’s build on this”

Fabio Depaoli had a Marassi debut to remember as Sampdoria beat Torino 1-0 on Sunday afternoon.
After missing the first game of the season against Lazio, Depaoli was delighted to get the three points at the Ferraris.

“Let’s build on this performance and this win,” said Depaoli after the game. “We put everything into getting it and it’s a big release for us. The three points give us a bit of a boost in terms of the table too. We know we have a good group and now we’ll go to Florence and look to prove that. We’re delighted with today – we did what the coach wanted and stayed compact and showed aggression. The fans cheered us on from the very start too.”

Sampdoria had to show real character to grind out the win against a physical side in Torino.

“We had to stand firm in the individual duels,” said Depaoli. “We knew that and that’s what we did. The coach warned us before the game and then congratulated us afterwards. I want to say thanks to the fans – there were lots of them here to support us. They helped to give us the desire to compete. They never stopped supporting us despite the way we started the season.”
