Quagliarella on Breaking Scoring Drought: “I Train Like a 20-Year-Old”

After the defeat at Milan, Sampdoria came back to winning ways against Empoli on Saturday with two goals scored by their eternal captain Fabio Quagliarella. Yesterday’s win was another step away from the relegation zone.

In an post-match interview with DAZN, the coach of Sampdoria, Marco Giampaolo, highlighted the qualities of his bomber and his relationship with him:“Fabio scored his first goal in the Serie A with me as his coach. He won the top scorer ranking in the Serie A against Cristiano Ronaldo. Today, he showed to be always reliable and to have a great spirit. He still chased everyone even though his 39 years. Many times, your head can make a difference if you feel good and at peace. I never had any doubt about Fabio.”

Quagliarella had not scored in 139 days and yesterday he stopped his abstinence with a stunning brace in the first half of the game. Saturday’s goals also made him reach a 100-goal milestone with the Doria shirt. At the end of the game, the captain said a few words for DAZN:

“I train like a 20-year-old and I always try to contribute. I have a certain age and I know it, but I will fight for this shirt until the last drop of sweat in my body.”
