The pupil of Lech Poznań was determined to leave Sampdoria. After the first season in Serie A, in which he scored eight goals and scored three assists, he could be an optimist. In the current games he did not play in the premier league in the basic line-up. He was broken and demanded a transfer. – I am too good to be on the bench for the next six months. I am sick of Sampdoria. I do not want to come back here – he complained in an interview for "Super Express".
Sampdoria extended the case, but the day before the end of the transfer period in Western Europe, Kownacki got permission for the transfer and went to medical tests in Düsseldorf. On Thursday – the last day – we managed to complete the transaction. – David works hard on the field. He has a great technique and has a good speed, and despite his young age he is experienced. We are happy that he has chosen our club, despite other lucrative offers he had – said Fortuny Sports Director Lutz Pfannenstiel.
