Scorpion Omar Colley’s side victory on Sunday against Udinese in Seria A gave Sampdoria the mathematical certainty of occupying third place. Omar Colley was among the best of the Dacia Arena victorious challenge. Sampdoria does not doubt that the Gambian defender’s steady progress could trigger the football transfer market -now close to re-opening.
The Gambian defender played from third on the left (in a 3,5,2 tactical eleven) and was very careful in repelling the Bianconeri maneuver. He tried to anticipate often and successfully. Whether associated with Lorenzo Tonelli or paired with Maya Yoshida, Colley always gives an added security to Sampdoria.
His Sunday game was almost perfect in the second half, and his presence was fundamental for Sampdoria’s whole defensive compartment. According to Sampdoria’s club website, Omar Colley’s ball recovery figure is no match during the encounter. It is the best of the match eight at odds of 15.
According to Sampdoria online’s Francesca Faralli, Colley was never afraid to go to the duel (He won two in the match against the Bianconeri). He intercepted six balls. With him, the Sampdoria defense is more attentive, more physical, and performing.
Claudio Ranieri’s boys have achieved their first goal and are now targeting Parma. But Omar Colley’s much-anticipated exit to the English Premier League, numerically, would not create a problem, but it would undoubtedly weaken Sampdoria’s rearguard.
