Delio Rossi: Icardi thinking of Samp

Sampdoria boss Delio Rossi has insisted that Mauro Icardi is only thinking about playing well for the club.

The Argentine forward has been the subject of transfer speculation hinting that he may make a summer move to Napoli or Inter.

But the Bluerchiati Coach has claimed that the young forward is focused on the job in hand, despite coming up against Walter Mazzarri's this weekend.

“The match against Napoli will be a complicated one,” he told a Press conference. “They have come off a heavy defeat in the Europa League, so will be out to prove a point.

“They have some quality players that are used to playing three games in a week.

“Most of the rumours about Icardi are false, but he is thinking about playing well. If he doesn't do that, his mentality on the pitch will be wrong.”
