The farewell to Doria after twelve years: “I wanted to score”.
Genoa – Twelve years in Sampdoria, albeit with various brackets on loan, are not a small curriculum for a thirty-year-old. But now the story between Vasco Regini and Sampdoria has been interrupted after 139 appearances with the Sampdoria shirt and several times the captain’s armband.
And now Regini?
“I have been released for a few days and I am looking for a new adventure. I don’t want to anticipate anything but I could go to Calabria (Reggina, ed) ”.
Will you miss Sampdoria?
“I leave a family, I arrived in January 2009 and so it’s been 12 years, practically my entire life as an adult footballer. My home was Sampdoria, an era is over even if I will remain Dorian forever “.
Did he want to continue the relationship?
“I’d be lying if I said no. There is some regret for not being able to continue because my dream was to finish my career with the Sampdoria. Unfortunately there was no chance, I do not complain, I know I have had ups and downs, but I am happy like this ”.
Your personal balance sheet?
“I have had ups and downs, also thanks to some injuries and technical choices that have not always made me end up on the pitch. It is part of football. I would go back anyway I would do it all again, I have always given 100%. And I got great satisfaction ”.
The best moment?
“The debut in Serie A, 19 years old, Sampdoria-Reggina 5-0, I entered in place of Raggi. What chills Marassi ”.
“Maybe last year against Bologna, my only career own goal, was heavy. The elimination from the Europa League preliminaries is also bad ”.
And the hands on Mihajlovic’s neck?
“I don’t wear it in bad moments, because he does everything instinctively, then he apologized, everything came back immediately and there is no train. These are gestures that happen, maybe not in the middle of the field with the camera at one meter but they happen ”.
Almost 140 appearances with Doria and zero goals.
“That’s my gripe, I went close several times, a couple of posts, but never scored. Sin”.
Now he’s married.
“My mates were there, it was a big party that my wife and I dreamed of. We had to postpone it for Covid. An enormous joy. My daughters were born in Genoa, another link that will remain with the city ”.
Wearing the headband?
“A great pride, I carry in my heart the two derbies with Giampaolo captain with me, both won”.
Fans on social media have often caught her.
“I was sorry that someone was targeting me a bit, situations arose at an image level that did not reflect reality. At one point for example it seemed that I wanted more money which was not true and from this a certain type of attitude was born. Then the grumbles about the performances on the field are there, they are legitimate and I accept them until death. I think those who really knew me appreciated having always given everything. Anyway I say thank you to all the Sampdoria world. I will always remain tied and a fan ”.
The best technician?
“I say two. Mihajlovic, who has a direct relationship and has given me confidence. The other is Giampaolo who made me captain ”.
