In the League Cup Manolo surprised the Special One with his Southampton: at the end of the race the Portuguese compliments arrived
Genoa – Positive feelings filter through Bogliasco, Manolo Gabbiadini is doing well. The knee does not bother him too much (“I felt it burn a little,” he declared in the post-Venice post) and tomorrow it should therefore be regularly available to Roberto D’Aversa for the away match at Roma. The striker is experiencing one of the best periods of his career, certainly from the point of view of realization. He had never scored in the league for four consecutive rounds with the same shirt. There is in fact a precedent of five, but spread between Naples and Southampton. But not only that, after having scored most of his goals in the second half, he is now discovering himself at the age of thirty as a striker to start the game. The goal scored against Romero on Sunday afternoon after 38 ”and the one scored against Sirigu in the derby in the 7th minute are the two fastest of his career. While in the history of Sampdoria he was placed in fourth place, after the 16 “used by Sansone to score against Sassuolo, the 21” of Kutuzov with Lazio and the 33 “of Defrel at Ferraris against Milan.
Gabbiadini has been dragging his knee discomfort with him for a while, but slowly he is getting used to it. will have to live with it. Up to now there are only two games, out of 12, in which the attacker has remained on the pitch from start to finish, against Fiorentina and Lazio. In the others, his playing time was managed by D’Aversa and his staff, clearly shared with the player. Certainly his return to the team full-time, after the ankle injury suffered against Milan on the first day that kept him out for five rounds, gave Sampdoria a change. And in particular to the offensive department, which had ended up in the crosshairs of the critics for the few goals scored. The 4 of Gabbiadini now join the four of Caputo and the only one scored so far by Quagliarella. In short, a loot that is growing day by day, even if the Sampdoria coach has repeatedly repeated that he considers it a “false problem”, «the most important thing for me is that the forwards participate in the team’s game in the right way. Then, whoever scores, scores ».
At the moment only Gabbiadini is doing it, but overall the performances of Caputo and Quagliarella have also improved in recent times. The perfect assist to Manolo on Sunday afternoon was provided by Caputo himself. While Quagliarella certainly drew moral benefits from the penalty scored against Turin in the Italian Cup. The runoff between Caputo and Quagliarella should be repeated tomorrow for the trip to the Olimpico. In fact, it is impossible to deprive oneself of this Gabbiadini, unless it is the medical staff to put some stakes.
Among other things, Manolo will find Mourinho who will bring him back in time a few years, to the League Cup final played at Wembley with his Southampton (Yoshida also on the field) against Ibrahimovic’s Manchester United (double for him too) and Smalling coached by the Portuguese on February 26, 2017. Lost 3-2 …. but with two of his goals (plus one unjustly canceled, according to the news), «Mourinho’s brace against Manchester United was incredible. Every now and then I still talk about the goals on my smartphone… »he recalled in some past interviews. But not only that, at the end of that match he had also received compliments from Mourinho: “When a character like him comes towards you, shakes your hand and tells you” You have been very good, you scored two goals as a phenomenon “, you feel something particular within you. Mourinho is a special person, and not just because of the successes he has achieved as a manager. He is charismatic ». Now, tomorrow, he will have the opportunity to give him a displeasure with the Sampdoria shirt.
By the way, the 4-1 victory in Bergamo created a lot of enthusiasm around Roma. Tomorrow the Olimpico is announced to be sold out again, at least for the capacity allowed (about 50,000), including the guest sector. Reason why the Sampdoria fans (50 yesterday) will be placed in another area of the stadium.
