FERRERO INVITATION TO DINNER WITH SPEECH
THE PATRON TRIES TO SPRAY HIS SAMP
Genoa – If it works, it could become an almost fixed appointment: Massimo Ferrero has invited his Sampdoria to dinner to load it in view of the delicate trip to Salerno. From the point of view of the communion of intentions, unity and compactness, themes on which he is battling a lot in recent times. It happened on Thursday night in a restaurant in Chiavari. Not a new location for the Sampdoria dressing room, because the team dinner was organized there (but without Ferrero) offered by Omar Colley for his twenty-ninth birthday before the Ligurian derby, which he won, with Spezia. And because it was precisely there that the midweek team dinners organized by Antonio Cassano took place at the time of his transition to the Sampdoria jersey.
Massimo Ferrero is trying them all, every strategy and tactic to stimulate and rekindle his players. In recent weeks he has started phase one, he has beaten above all on the field factor, that is his frequent visits to Mugnaini during training, observed from the sidelines, often closed with direct confrontations with members of the various staff and players. Then, last week, he moved on to phase two, the individual talks at the Melìa, meeting in two days practically all the Sampdoria who had not been called up by their respective national teams, in a kind of confessional with a strong “fatherly” spirit.
And now he has moved on to phase three, no steps at Mugnaini but group dinner. An absolute novelty from the point of view of the premises, in fact Ferrero had never organized it to motivate his Sampdoria in a moment of difficulty. And this is it. The trip to Salerno does not only offer three points, but depending on the result and performance it also calls into question the future of Roberto D’Aversa’s technical project. A strong and clear response is also expected from the Ferrero team. In absolute terms, only a precedent of a team dinner called by the president, in March 2017 by “Da o Vittorio” in Recco, is remembered, after a Stracittadina decided by Muriel, to celebrate the victories in the home and away derby. In the past few seasons, on the eve of the match, away, it happened that the president joined the team table, but these were episodes linked above all to being in the same place.
Thursday evening in Chiavari a dinner passed in carefree. The inevitable motivational speech by the president, which stimulated his players to win the match in Salerno, underlining the qualities and strength of the group. And if the dinner has turned out well, you can bet a penny that it will make up again.
