Defrel: ‘I lacked confidence’

Gregoire Defrel said he had been “just lacking confidence” at Roma, as he spearheaded Sampdoria’s 5-0 demolition of Frosinone.

The Blucerchiati followed up the 3-0 win over Napoli by thrashing Frosinone 5-0 for their biggest ever Serie A away victory.

“There are no easy games in Serie A,” insisted Defrel on DAZN.

“We struggled in the first half, as after we took the lead, they fought back and caused us a lot of problems. We came out with the right attitude for the second half and it was a super performance.”

Defrel was a flop at Roma, but has truly found his form at Sampdoria, scoring four goals in four games.

“I was just lacking confidence and the important thing is that now I am in good shape physically. I really want to play, score goals and continue like this.”
