thumbnail Hello,

The Blucerchiati premier insists there is no need for a ritiro, rather some positive forward thinking...

Sampdoria president Riccardo Garrone has ruled out a boot-camp style ritiro, claiming the players need to think positively ahead of their date with Roma.

Doria have lost their last three competitive games, with back-to-back defeats in Serie A against Genoa and Milan. The results saw fans protest at Bogliasco this week as they expressed concern with the slide.

However, Garrone is confident his side can come together to deliver good results from now on.

"A ritiro seems like an easy argument to face, but for me it's a sterile one. I think the mentality needs to change, not the location," Garrone told Il Secolo XIX.

"We just need to regather our motivation and positivity that was with us just over two weeks ago."

The chief has urged his side to react and show broader shoulders against the Lupi when they visit Marassi on Sunday.
"We need to take responsibilty and react on Sunday against Roma. We will face a strong team, but we are at home and in front of our fans," he added.

"I am sure the players will not let us down."
