MATERAZZI: "INTER DESERVED MORE"
MILAN - "A step back compared to the victory in Florence? If we look at the result, then maybe yes," Marco Materazzi told SkyItalia after the Nerazzurri's 1-1 home draw with Sampdoria. "But we created more chances than in Florence. We were unlucky and their goalkeeper did well. You all saw the second half: they had the chance from the penalty and scored, and I can't remember our goalkeeper having any saves to make.
"We were unlucky and too much criticism isn't fair. The penalty? Once in the area it could have been a penalty. They were both holding each other back but the defender is usually punished and it went the striker's way today. The rules have probably changed...
"It's not nice for me to talk because I didn't play in Portugal, but in Lisbon we probably didn't have the same aggression we had today. The result aside, we created so much against Samp and their goalkeeper saved everything."
