Petar Stojanović is going through a tough time after moving to an iconic club: it’s true that he plays regularly, but Sampdoria are getting very bad results
When the Slovenian national team Petar Stojanović left the ranks of Italian first division side Empoli in the summer and signed for Sampdoria which was relegated from Serie A, he was convinced that he was in for a season of winning with his new club. But the start of the new competition year was very different. The legendary club from Genoa, which was even Italian champion in the 1990s with Srečko Katanec in the team, is struggling in Serie B.
Petar Stojanović and his teammates won only once in eight games, while losing five times. They are currently on a run of seven consecutive games without a win, during which time they have won just two points. A glance at the standings shows that the squad, led from the bench by the legendary Andrea Pirlo, is in a modest second to last place in the second Italian league!
Last weekend, Petar Stojanović was also disappointed to leave the Marassi pitch after a home game against Catanzaro. The Ljubljana player played the whole game, but was unable to prevent the defeat. Fabio Borini put the hosts in front, but the visitors, who played all 90 minutes under Luka Krajnc, responded with two goals to take their fourth win of the season. If Sampdoria is at the bottom, Kranjc’s new club is high up in fourth place in Serie B.
