Sampdoria not only won one point at AC Milan’s headquarters, but also successfully recorded a cleansheet when they visited the San Siro yesterday. Not surprisingly, Defender Omar Colley is proud of this achievement, especially since he feels he can stop or reduce the movement of a wild striker, like Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
As is known, Sampdoria travel to San Siro to face host AC Milan at the 18th Italian Serie A Giornata on Monday night WIB (06/01). In the match, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who officially joined the Rossoneri since January 3, did get a chance to debut in his second period with AC Milan.
The 38-year-old striker entered in the 67th minute replacing Piatek. Unfortunately, the presence of Ibra did not necessarily change the position, the glasses score remained until the fight ended. In fact, Milan’s superior possession reaches 68.3%. Milan are also superior to the number of shots (19-6) and shots on target (8-2).
Obviously this is a satisfying achievement for the visitors, and it’s only natural that defender Omar Colley feels proud of the final result of the match. Apart from that, he is also proud to be able to reduce the movement of Milan’s brand-new striker.
“We have three or four chances to score the winning goal. We are still happy. We get one point at the San Siro against Milan. We prevent Ibrahimovic from scoring. We have started 2020 in the best way, “Colley said, as quoted by Football Italia.
Ibrahimovic is a player who is full of experience, he has had a career in Italy with Juventus, Inter Milan and AC Milan. Together with the three clubs, Ibra successfully embraced the Scudetto, he was also successful with Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United and LA Galaxy.
“He is a champion. He is rich in experience and has won many trophies. This is important for Italy and Serie A. The whole stadium gives applause when he enters the field. Players like Ibra also motivate his colleagues. This is a difficult match for us, but we are compact and help one another. The 0-0 result at Milan is important for us, “added the Sampdoria defender.
