Following a humiliating 3-0 match between Sampdoria and Napoli, Sampdoria manager Marco Giampaolo believes “if Cristiano Ronaldo had scored Fabio Quagliarella’s goal, everyone would talk about it.”

Football Italia says that the Blucerchiati ran riot at Marassi with a Gregoire Defrel brace and Quagliarella’s astonishing back-heel flick.

“It was a wonderful evening because to beat Napoli you need to put in a great performance and be fortunate in some incidents,” the Coach told Radio Rai as quoted by Football Italia.

“I don’t even know how good my team is, because some players are still in precarious physical condition. We made up for the unlucky defeat to Udinese and showed we could both attack and soak up the pressure.

“The squad was unduly criticised after that loss in Udine. Defrel was extraordinary when attacking the space, while if Cristiano Ronaldo had scored Quagliarella’s goal, everyone would talk about it.
